  • Early child marriage poses hindrance to the overall development of a child.

    Despite laws and regulations it is still prevalent in many parts of India.

In the age of wearing school uniform, girls are being pushed to wear bridal veil. Child marriage is one of the social evil which is deep-rooted in the history of India. Despite of numerous laws & regulations, the traces of it can still be felt in rural settlements of India. One such area is Alwar, Rajasthan, where the concept of early marriages is still prevalent.  Child Marriage is social evil which causes basic hindrance within the course of economic, social, cultural, political and financial development of an individual and consequently of a region as a whole. Further, a large proportion of reproductive and sexual health concerns of adolescent girls and women are rooted in early marriage and early pregnancy.
