"School 2: Early Marriages"

FFC volunteers in School 2 with the children there. The place where we come together not only to learn and play but also to learn and care. This is our school 2 where volunteers of FFC take classes everyday. This is basically a roadside area opposite Hitvada Office, near Panchsheel Square in Nagpur, where the migrants from Gujarat live and sell Cricket bats and other wooden stuff to earn their living. Its an all together different experience to be with the people and be with the children there.

There are children of age group that ranges from 5 yrs to 22 yrs. The children are very much keen to study and are always welcoming towards the FFC volunteers. There are children who go to school and there are others who are dropouts. Among those who are dropouts, comprises of mainly of girls between age 14 yrs to 22 yrs who are already engaged in the villages of Gujarat and are just waiting for the season of Navratri to get married.
The elder girls and boys informed the FFC volunteers that in Gujarat which is their native place, the children are engaged as soon as they are born. So throughout their life they are aware that they have to get married to the person who they have never seen.
Apart from this there are other children who have the will and wish to study. But somehow this trend of getting the teenagers married so early still exists in our society.
We at Friends For Care stand and raise our voice for a change.
