Stop Child Marriages Project, Annual Report 2014

In this annual report Agape AIDS Control Programme looks back on the achievements, challenges and lessons learnt from the period of January 2014 – December 2014. The report was primarily discussed and written during the organizational annual general meeting in December 2014 by different department teams. The creation of the report is therefore a part of Agape AIDS Control Programme’s internal learning process as well as our external reporting requirement. The aim of writing the report is to reflect on the progress of the organization work, success and lessons learnt and share with its donors, partners, fellow practitioners, stakeholders and well wishers. It is hoped that everyone will find something that is meaningful in it.

In 2014 Agape AIDS Control Programme secured funds for implementing “Stop Child Marriages Project in Kishapu and Shinyanga Rural Districts in Shinyanga Region” funded by Terre des Hommes Netherlands based  in the Hague supported by Dutch Government. The beneficiary of this project is a child/youth who is a victim of early marriage/pregnancies and those at risk of early marriages/pregnancies with an age range  of 12-17 years and in need of prevention and protection from early marriages/pregnancies through education support, adolescent support groups, SRHR services, vocational training, Reproductive training to adolescent girls and boys in and out of schools, temporary shelter and child protection system strengthening through child protection teams (Ward-District level), paralegals and school committees’ project support, community sensitization using various programs like cinema, dialogues, meetings, drama, roll playing and trainings.

Agape AIDS Control Programme has also faced some challenges in the past twelve months (January – December 2014) as outlined in this report. Primarily, Agape AIDS Control Programme has continued to face challenges in shortage of funds, lack of real information on child marriages from various community leaders, culture and values still hindering factor to stopping child marriages, lack of transport facilities, and corruption in existing law enforcing bodies.

In order to sustain the gains already achieved and scale up interventions, the national response to Stop Child Marriages requires concerted efforts and commitment by all stakeholders. It is our sincere hope that this report will provide very useful information for stakeholders to build on the achievements and use available opportunities for better programming of Child Protection interventions.
