Once a girl is out of school, she is more vulnerable to child marriage and early pregnancy. Alternatively it is clear that child marriage often means the end to a girls’ formal education. Education can be one of the most powerful tools to enable girls to avoid child marriage and fulfill their potential. The longer a girl stays in school, the less likely she is to be married before the age of 18 and have children during her teenage years.
In the region where the proportion of girl child marriage was 55%, and in such area of Ahmedpur of Latur district, we implemented adolescent girls development program during the period of on the year 2006-2012, then this proportion has reduced to 28%. “Total eradication of girl child marriages” is our objective and we need your active support for attaining this August objective.
However, education alone is not enough to end child marriage. We also need to address the root cause of child marriage: It has came to our notice that non availability of education facility after 7th standard, financial incapacity of parents, lack of gender equality and feeling of social insecurity are the prime reasons due to which after 7th standard more than 6% girls are dropped out of the schools in our own village or nearby villages. Lack of gender equality and poverty are the reasons because of which school drop out at the primary level happens in the equivalent manner, and such school drop out further increases at the high school level. If continuous education of the girls is maintained then guarantee of employment and self sufficiency increases and along with that risk of their “Girl Child Marriages” can be avoided.
Therefore, to increase proportion of continuous education of the girls and to increase their “Life Skills” and with this August objective, we are working with the assistance and cooperation of the girls and their parents, and therefore we need your support to achieve the August objective and we are confident that you shall definitely help us.
