Campaign against early marriage

Breakthrough and Gram Vaani worked together in Jharkhand to discuss the community’s feelings towards early marriage — why it still happens, what are its affects on girls, what are its affects on boys, secondary education, and other aspects. The campaign demonstrates the willingness of the community to discuss even hard topics such as these.

This campaign was also unique because it involved a lot of offline activity where pledges were taken from Panchayat members, school teachers, police officials, and others, to sensitize them to the topic of early marriage.
