STOP CHILD MARIAGE
Welcome to “Breaking Chains,” a transformative project dedicated to shedding light on the alarming issue of child marriage and raising awareness about its devastating consequences. Child marriage is a global crisis that affects millions of young girls and boys, depriving them of their childhood, education, and basic human rights. This project aims to bring together communities, activists, and policymakers to join forces in the fight against this deeply entrenched practice.
Child marriage refers to any marriage where one or both parties are below the age of 18. It is a violation of fundamental human rights, including the right to education, health, and freedom from violence and discrimination. Despite international conventions and efforts to eradicate child marriage, it remains prevalent in many parts of the world, particularly in developing countries.
This project recognizes the urgent need for collective action to address child marriage and create lasting change. By harnessing the power of awareness, education, and advocacy, we aspire to break the chains that bind these vulnerable children and pave the way for a future where every child can grow and flourish.
