  • I absolutely love your idea of letting the girls record their own stories and stories from their surroundings and present it to the world. Nothing better than learning of experiences from the person’s own mouth and seeing things as they see it. I love it how you are planning to make use of social media to get attention to the issue of Child Marriage in our country, at a time where most of us would be sitting rather comfortably, believing we have successfully dealt with the issue.

    All the best! We will be looking forward to your posts 🙂
