I For In-laws
‘I for In-Laws’ signifies how child marriage makes a young girl lose her childhood and also her identity. It is worrisome that, if the present trends continue, 100 million girls across the world will be married over the next decade. That would mean 25,000 girls being married every day for the next 10 years.
68% of girls in Rajasthan are married before the age of 18. They are torn away from their parents and compelled to obey their in-laws.
Our project ‘Child Brides: Send them to School Instead’ is our effort to send girls to school. We work in Pali and Jalore districts in Rajasthan where we stress on education and work towards the prevention of child marriage.
Join our ‘Send Child Brides to School’ campaign and support us to send every girl child to school!
