Addressing Child Marriage in Nepal through Behavior Change Communication and Social Mobilization

The goal of the Chunauti (which means “challenge” in Nepali) project, which was supported by USAID and implemented by CARE, was to decrease the harmful practices of child marriage and gender-based violence in three districts of Nepal - Dhanusha, Mahottari, and Rupandehi - and strengthen the enabling environment at the national and district levels to combat child marriage and other forms of gender-based violence through behavior change communication and social mobilization in Nepal.
