Our organization along with Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation is taking every possible step along with running awareness campaigns to end this social evil. Child marriage is a big attack on human freedom, dignity, social morality, equality and inclusion. There is a need to amend the existing law to make the law against child marriage stricter and stronger. We request the government and all political parties to encourage the education of children, especially girls, by increasing the age limit for compulsory free education to 18 years along with amendment in the law. This will help a lot in preventing child marriage. By the year 2030, India has to be made a child marriage free country by completely eliminating child marriage from the society.
