Infotainment empowers! Forced #earlymarriage stopped

admin 8 January 2021

Infotainment empowers! Listen to Pooja Kumari who shares that she stopped her friend’s forced early marriage by calling 1098. She got this idea from a segment on Meri Awaz Meri Pehchan, a community media platform on women’s and girls’ issues. When Pooja, a 6th grader in Bihar, learnt of her friend’s early marriage, she tried to convince her friend’s mother to stop it. But when she disagreed, Pooja remembered a story she heard on our IVR Meri Awaz Meri Pehchan & called ChildLine (1098) to report it. The wedding was stopped.
