To mark the Day of the African Child, HER CHOICE, as a member of Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End Child Marriage, is launching a music video and calling for renewed action to end child marriage.
HER CHOICE is an alliance of four Netherlands-based organisations: Stichting Kinderpostzegels Nederland, The Hunger Project, International Child Development Initiatives (ICDI) and the University of Amsterdam. These organisations combine their efforts with 27 local partner organisations to combat child marriage in eleven countries.
The song ‘We are Girls, Not Brides’ was written, composed and sung by a group of talented young girls from Lusaka Girls School, who take part in a girls’ empowerment club run by Girls Not Brides member Continuity-Zambia Organization.
The song is a powerful reminder that girls want to be girls not brides, and that governments must deliver on their commitments to end child marriage in Africa.
