Child Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM)

Project Background

The cases of getting married are very concerning for indigenous youth and indigenous communities because this will be affected the future of indigenous people, especially their health, culture, and domestic violence. Young people don’t go to school. Another issue will also arise like a drug addiction for young people particularly young boys and this will lead to no security in the communities like more gangsters, thieves, and more crimes.  

Project targets: 14 villages from 5 indigenous groups in 2 Districts in Ratanakiri.

Project duration: October 2021 to December 2023
