In honour of National Girl Child Day on January 24, a series of district level consultations was initiated to develop a national action plan to address the widespread practice of child marriage in India.
FXB’s approach was to set up prevention measures with the stakeholders working for the protection of the girls. Among the issues tackled were the relevance of a legal framework to safeguard the respect of children’s rights and the extension of free and compulsory school for girls up to the age of 18. Girls’ abuse cases range from child marriage to child labour to missing children.
As strong nationwide campaigns gain momentum, children are eventually given a voice. The campaign also aimed at committing organizations and individuals working with children and gradually increasing their efforts for children’s rights protection.
