Watch this amazing short film on child marriage created by our Childline and Udaan projects.
Unfortunately, many people in India remain unaware of the laws protecting our children from underage marriage. Child marriage physically and mentally exploits young people and many do not dare to report when this serious crime takes place. This video aims to create awareness of how to report and prevent child marriage.
Did you know? There are 156 million men and over 250 million girls who were married before they turned 15
