According to DLHS data, around 48% of married women in the 20-24 year age group got married before 18 in rural areas, compared with 29% in urban areas. Over the past fifteen years, child marriage has declined by just 11 percent – less than one percent per year. Child marriage is driven by poverty and has many effects on girls' health: increased risk for sexually transmitted diseases. If you hear about a child marriage happening in your school or neighbourhood, you can tell your nearest panchayat, closest police station, a nearby charity that works for children or your local leaders, representatives or MLAs. These adults have a responsibility to stop a child marriage happening.
Three simple actions against child marriage
1.Report any child marriage happening around you to the proper authorities.
2.Educate your friends, family and community about why child marriage is harmful.
3.Promise to never be a part of any event that promotes child marriage.
