Many communities continue to practice child and forced marriage in Kenya, despite the negative social and health outcomes it causes, including persistent poverty and inequality. Religious Leaders are advocating for greater government action to address the issue, and to strengthen our collective efforts to eliminate the practice.
With support from Walk Free, and in deep consultation with theologians and faith leaders, the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya (IRCK) developed a guidance to provide a clear framework for faith leaders to engage with their communities and the Kenyan government to address child and forced marriage.
