“I am thrilled to meet the young champions who raised awareness in their community on the dangers and long-term impact of child marriage. They worked with their peers to create a safety net to protect children from getting physically and sexually abused. These are trying times due to COVID-19, but it has not affected the children,” she said.
The popular actress added: “These efforts by the adolescent and young people are courageous and commendable. I take this opportunity to salute them for their incredible efforts.”
“It is the need of the hour to reimagine a better world where the decision makers count them, listen to them and invest in their education and skills. Let us explore the innovative solutions to end gender-based violence and child marriage,” she stated.
