Prevention of Early Marriage

Georgia | Momavlis Taoba - Civic Education Program | 16 Oct 2017

Students of Kalinino public school organized an information campaign to increase students’ awareness about the bad influence of early marriage. The initiative was prioritized as there were many cases of early marriage in Azeri communities. Students interviewed local women who got married in their early ages and shot a bilingual (in Azeri and Georgian languages) a video. The students shared the video with other Azeri schools’ students. 

Students invited a psychologist and public defender to the school and discussed the risks of early marriage, organized a thematic film screening, developed information flyers and disseminated them among the community.  Regional TV covered the news about the project.
