Update for project 1702

Three years have gone after Tsunami and for most of the outside people it is very distant in their memories, moreover people think the rehabilitation work is over; new houses are built, boats and nets are given to people, normal life is returned. But there are hundreds of Devis and Sundaris in Tsunami affected villages, where people think girls are burden on families, so they are stopped from schools after puberty and married off, even to marry most of them take huge loans or sell their assets to give dowry. We just want to change this situation educate the community that girls are not liabilities but assets of the family and community
