Case study : A ray of hope visualized - Amidst social evil structure

Sunanda is from Markamdinni village of Manvi Taluka in Raichur District became a victim of child marriage. She was from an economically backward family. Sunanda shared the troubles she underwent by being married at a tender age. Her familyís economic condition compelled Sunanda to migrate to neighbouring town to earn a living as a domestic worker, though she was very much interested to go to school had to discontinue her primary schooling. She pleaded her parents to allow her to continue studies but parents didnít heed to her request. She worked hard to fulfill the needs of the family. One fine evening her parents decided to give her in marriage to Santhosh her cousin brother who was 17 years of age.

Sunanda was just 11 years at that time of marriage where she like any other girls suppose to enjoy her schooling. But she got married to Santhosh against her own wish, and was not allowed to continue her studies. Early marriage, led also to early pregnancy, resulting in serious health issues. The first childís delivery had troubled her greatly. Since she was very weak physically she was not able breastfeed her little baby initially. At times it was hard to take care child properly. Very often husbandís family did not attend to her health.

When she was living in this turmoil situation, she met Fr. Sathish Fernandes the Director of Vimukti, who visited her village. After the comforting advice, support was rendered to her to counter the reality. To support her concretely she was assigned as a para- teacher in her village. To our surprise she did her job very charmingly and efficiently. When the child marriage awareness program was conducted in her village, Sunanda actively involved herself in the survey practice of the evil of child marriage that was prevalent in her village. She sensitizes the adolescents as well as adults of her community about the physical and psychological problems one faces as a result of child marriage. She substantiates with her own example and forbids everyone to not encourage child marriage. Sunanda, today, is considered one of the most resourceful person in her community to make people aware about child right issues
