Here's the story of one such Unleashed Woman: Veena was married off at just 16 years old. Getting married this young is illegal in India where she lives, but it is still very common. Child marriage can have devastating effects on girls, including violence, exclusion from any control or decision making, early pregnancy and limited opportunities for employment.
Due to her personal experience, Veena is passionate about ending child marriage. Through The Hunger Project’s training, Veena now sees how she could use her influence as an elected member of her local council to stop other girls being married off at an early age. As a result, she has led a local movement against child marriage, going door to door talking to people about how harmful and dangerous it is for girls. She was successful in getting the local council to pass a declaration to end child marriage in her area. She is proud that no young girls have been married in the last 2 years.
Together we can unleash our potential to make a difference in the world – invest now in amazing transformative leaders like Veena!
