Training of Community Social Workers
Over 1700 Community Social Workers (CSWs) of NGOs were trained in 42 sessions conducted across 11 States in India. The training sessions covered various topics related to child marriage. The CSWs were provided with knowledge on laws related to child marriage so they could sensitise the community and create deterrence. Through these sessions, it was made sure that the CSWs establish child marriage as a criminal offence rather than just a social evil in society.
