“Girls are not a burden, they are the wealth of the country.”

Theme: Gender Equality

Ummey’s project: Adolescent Club (কিশোর-কিশো্রী ক্লাব)

In Ummey's community child marriage is a big issue. It often happens that girls get married at an early age and they sometimes even die in the process of giving birth to another child. Together with her already established club for teenagers meant to raise awareness against child marriage, Ummey wants to do skills training sessions for children in order to teach them how to break their and others' marriages.
