Training on Adolescent girls on Eliminating Child Marriage and Gender-based Violence: Vimukti Pothnal
VIMUKTI Pothnal in collaboration with Province of Emilia-Romagna, Italy organized training on adolescents on Eliminating Child Marriage and Gender- based Violence on 5th of March, 2023 at Vimukti center Pothnal. The objective of this trainings is adolescent girls face many social challenges such as gender discrimination, child marriage, teenage pregnancy, sexual abuse, and domestic violence in their young lives. As young daughters, early married young women, and often as young mothers, they are expected to conform to certain “norms” and behaviors. The following key issues were explained to the adolescent girls by the two resource persons, who are at risk, in the age group of 13 to 18 years, to build their capacities in three ways.

  • Firstly, by helping them understand and acknowledge the enormity of the issues they face, such as the lack of basic rights including access to educational facilities and livelihood opportunities, and being forced into child marriage, teenage pregnancy, and domestic violence.

  • Secondly, by attempting to improve their decision making and negotiation abilities regarding education and livelihood, choosing a life partner, tackling dowry, managing expectations faced as a bride, fighting domestic violence, and handling the pressure to produce babies.

  • Thirdly, by encouraging value, respect, and trust within themselves through discussions, impartial sessions, and creating spaces for exploration. The improved capacities of adolescent girls can help them support each other which can lead to the creation of safe and supportive spaces. The resource persons conducted the sessions very creatively and adolescent girls actively participated, clarified their doubts. Nearly 102 adolescent girls attended and benefited from this training.
