Abstract

According to UNICEF, Bangladesh has the fourth highest rate of child marriage in the world. In this article, Zerina Shabnaz Akkas and Khurshed Alam discuss the different understandings of ‘girl child protection’ among NGOs and the tea communities. Drawing on experience of implementing child protection in remote tea estates, they make recommendations on how programs to end child marriage can be improved.
