“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.
You will be happy to know that our project is doing well at the Girl Effect GlobalGiving Challenge. We are now among the finalists and need your help to remain among the top six to win.
All we need this Thanksgiving is for you to tell atleast five of your friends about our project and encourage them to donate. A minimum contribution of 10 USD will help us move ahead in the competition and win it.
Lets’ empower the girl child and protect her from becoming a child bride. Donate now and send her to school instead.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
