Girls’ Empowerment Network | GENET

The organization’s mission is to promote and advocate for economic, social, and emotional well-being of girls and young women and to influence positive social transformation. GENET’s pioneering approach has successfully advocated for the passage of local bylaws prohibiting child marriage, and the implementation of stiff penalties for those who perpetuate the practice. The organization has also been active in developing media advocacy tools to use in the fight against marriage, including a video about harmful traditional practices in Malawi.
