We were only students but now as a member of Swayangsiddha group our responsibilities have been increased manifold. Presently, child marriage is prevalent in a number of places, which cannot always be stopped. But now we being aware of the consequences of child marriage, will make others aware and try to and prevent it from taking place. We are happy to be a member Swayangsiddha initiative and we will fulfill our responsibilities.
Child marriage is prevalent in this area. Cases of trafficking were also reported. The boys start working early due to poverty and also gets married before attaining the legal age of marriage. It is of utmost importance to disseminate the messages of Swayangsiddha among other students. Hopefully, students will take that initiative to prevent social evils like child marriage.
Today we were initiated as members of Swayangsiddha. Now we need to be more conscious and make our families and neighbours aware of child marriage and human trafficking. Parents marry off their children early as they marry after eloping. Those parents and children must be made aware to refrain from indulging in child marriage and be alert against human trafficking.
Swayangsiddha is a commendable initiative to build awareness against child marriage, human trafficking and the importance of education in life. We will try to raise awareness among the guardians and the local community.
