A member of Swayangsiddha Group prevented her child marriage

Sherpur Ramchandrapur High School 26/07/2018

Nurunnesha Khatun, a student of class VII, reported to the school that her family members, specially her mother, were preparing for her marriage, something that she did not want. We convinced her that nothing of that sort was going to happen. We contacted her mother and called her to the school. She responded sportingly and came. In the presence of our TIC and other teachers, we made her understand that what she was going to do was a violation of the law and she must refrain from it. We succeeded to convince her. She confessed, in writing, that she would think of her daughter's marriage only after she turned 18 years of age. She would let her study as much as she liked to.
