SPOTLIGHT ON: HER CHOICE
Building Child Marriage Free Communities
Her Choice is an alliance of three Dutch based organizations (Kinderpostzegels, The Hunger Project and ICDI), who together with their partner organisations in ten countries will combine efforts to fight child marriage.
The programme will run from January 2016 to December 2020 and is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. ICDI will be active in 5 countries: Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Make sure you know the names and faces of the children you work for. In the end, that’s what ICDI is all about.
ICDI provided international expertise, networking and training, and as a result many villages in Pakistan are becoming child marriage free.

Let’s do it together
To realize our dream of ‘a happy life for all children’ we want and need to work together with others who share our passion and professionalism. ICDI is always looking to build new partnerships.
At ICDI we believe in the power of cooperation. In partnership with other organizations we develop and implement projects that promote children’s well-being. Are you a local or international child rights organization? ICDI can support you through training, research and advice.
ICDI is a vibrant organization, constantly developing innovative initiatives that improve the well-being of children growing up in difficult circumstances. We need your support to turn our ideas into reality, scaling them up and making a difference.
