Wedding Busters: Child Marriage-Free Zones in Bangladesh

submitted by eheartproject on 09/26/14 1

66% of girls in Bangladesh are married under 18. To address this, Plan supports a children's organisation that works with local government, community-based organisations and others in the area to create child marriage-free zones to stop early marriage. The children call emergency meetings whenever they hear about a child marriage, they then visit the parents to discuss the issue and inform them of the negative impact that child marriage has on a girls. Working together with local authorities, the children's group has convinced the community that child marriage is not good and should be ended.
