OUR STORY

The overall design, purpose and structure of our programmes of women empowerment, awareness of socio-legal rights and education were vital for the realization of human rights for all and stop exploitation including prevention of child marriage.


Our team frequently tries to explain the hazardous aspect of child marriage such as:

1. It automatically hinders educational progress and dropout leading them to remain poor and poorer.

2. It causes health hazard of child bearing. Even death can occur to a premature girl (below the age of 18 years) as her body is not ready for childbirth. Due to low education level, they become prone to various life endangering diseases.

3. Pregnant Girl Child shies away from taking hospital support and or giving birth under medical supervision, making a perpetual risk of life of child & mother bride.

This mostly happen due to conflicting legal provisions in the Acts as follows:

• Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006,

• Juvenile Justice (care and protection of children) Act, 2015,

• Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005,

• Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, .

• Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO), 2012, etc,

4. We therefore continuously explain the provisions of Prohibition of Child Marriage Act (PCMA) 2006 and other Acts in force.
