Child Marriage Free India Campaign
Child Marriage Free India is the largest grassroots campaign spearheaded by civil society organisations and women activists in over 300 districts having the highest rate of child marriage in the country. The aim is clear - to end child marriages in India by 2030. Behind this goal are about 30 million underage girls, who we intend to save from the ill effects of getting married early.
As per latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS) data, a staggering 23.3% of women between the 20-24 age group were married before they turned 18. This is what we are up against. Through special focus on the effective implementation of the existing government policies and laws for child protection, the campaign aims to eliminate the scourge of child marriage from the country, one step at a time.
