Child marriage is a global problem which affects millions of people across the world. It is considered a human rights violation because it deprives those involved, especially girls, of education and health services, the chance to learn skills and develop their personalities, and leaves them vulnerable.

Until this study was conducted, there was no up-to-date, national-level information or data on child marriage in Nepal. The study, whose focus is more qualitative than quantitative, documents the prevalence and changing paradigms and patterns of child marriage; its underlying causes and its consequences; and gaps in law enforcements. Its results will be useful for difference purposes, including the development of policies and plans and the design of programmes and interventions to eliminate Child Marriage in Nepal.
