    Adolescent Girls

    from Murshidabad, West Bengal

Story

Fatima (name changed) a 16 year old from Kandi block of Murshidabad district in West Bengal was married off last April to a man twice her age. Her parents took the decision as the dowry demands where less owing to the pandemic. Fatima now has to live a married life at a very young age and is also being forced to bear children without any awareness on family planning methods or informed choice of sexual reproductive health.

Due to the ongoing effects of pandemic there has been a spike in early/child marriage, trafficking and young girls are often falling prey to such unacceptable norms and exploitation.  

Project Udaan, an initiative of Anahat For Change Foundation seeks to make gender based violence and discrimination against women and girls unacceptable by using a rights based approach. Udaan will work out of 30 villages in 4 community development blocks of Murshidabad district (Kandi, Khargram, Nabagram, Berhampur) of West Bengal initially targeting minority/SC/ST adolescent girls aged between 13 to 18 years in 33 centres run my Mahalandi Institute of Child Rights Organization (MICRO)
