|Name:||Model Law on Eradicating Child Marriage and Protecting Children Already in Marriage|
This pace-setting SADC Model Law on Eradicating Child Marriage and Protecting Children Already in Marriage would not have been developed successfully were it not for the financial, technical, political, moral and other support that the SADC Parliamentary Forum got from many cooperating partners, people and institutions. A few deserve special mention: Sweden, and Norway who have partnered with SADC PF since 2007 and are funding our Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Project which spearheaded the development of this Model Law; the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA); the African Union; the Association of European Parliamentarians with Africa (AWEPA); various Civil Society Organisations (including Plan International 18+ Programme, the Southern African Litigation Centre (SALC), Girls not Brides (GnB) and the World Young Women’s Christian Association (World YWCA); the East African Legislative Assembly; the SADC Secretariat; the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); Botswana High Court Judge, Prof Key Dingake (PhD); legal drafters from the SADC Region’s National Parliaments; many Members of Parliament from the SADC Region; traditional leaders; survivors of child marriage and many young people of our region. Our grateful thanks go, also, to the various interpreters who ensured that we communicated effectively during the many months that we spent pondering over drafts of this Model Law until finalisation.
