USAID’s Breakthrough ACTION Local Systems Strengthening to Reduce Child, Early, and Forced Marriage (R-CEFM) activity aims to strengthen the institutional and technical capacity of the Government of Nepal to design, implement, evaluate and coordinate effective programs to reduce CEFM in Province 2.

Breakthrough ACTION is a partnership of Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs and SAVE the Children. This 3-year, $2.4 Million activity will work closely with the Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizens (MWCSC), Province 2, and select local-level government and non-government structures to ensure synergy and maximize impact. CEFM is a complex issue requiring an integrated, cross-sectoral approach at all administrative levels and across Education, Child Welfare, Health, Gender Equity/Social Inclusion (GESI), and Democracy and Governance (linking with Law Enforcement).
