The Looming Perils Of Child Marriage In India

Solemnisation of #childmarriage has been prohibited under the Child Marriage Act of 2006. “But are we really abiding by the law yet? Out of every 28 child marriages that occur per minute in the world, more than two take place in India. According to data, everyday 3,603 new cases of child marriage were still being added to the existing number.” Geeta Lama of SavetheChildren India writes about “The Looming Perils of Child Marriage.” #savethechildren #stopchildmarriage #girlsnotbrides
