Nelly’s project: Fostering gender equality by promoting girl child education

In Nelly's community, girls are normally denied the right to education as they are seen as sources of income for their families and they are married off at early ages. To fight against this issue, Nelly wants to promote the right to education of the girl child by conducting awareness sessions with parents and guardians and by advocating against early forced marriages in the community through community-led dialogues.
