#Blog4Dev Competition: What will it take to end child marriage in your country?
Launched in 2014 by the World Bank Kenya office, the Blog4Dev competition is an annual writing contest, inviting young people to weigh in on a topic critical to the country’s economic development. The competition is a way to engage Africa’s youth and provide a platform to share their views—and solutions—about development topics that are important to them.

Empowering women to prevent early marriage and pregnancy for adolescent girls is one of the World Bank Africa Human Capital Plan objectives.
Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest prevalence of child marriage in the world. These young girls are having their childhoods cut short, but this goes far beyond a moral issue. This situation has a negative impact on development.
So, we want to hear from you! Share your views by answering the following question: “What will it take to end child marriage in your country?”

A panel of expert judges from inside and outside the World Bank Group will review all entries and select the top five from each country. The selected authors will be interviewed, and a top winner will be chosen from each country.
