Ep2: Education – A way out

According to UNICEF, 27% of girls in India are married before their 18th birthday and  53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate. More than 50 per cent of girls fail to enrol in school; those that do are likely to drop out by the age of 12.

In this episode we talk about how educating a girl child is one of the most important things to break the cycle of abuse and empower them to become independent.

The host Padma Priya sat down with Neha and Afreen who work at Shaheen and they told her about their attempts to be educated to secure their future. You will also hear from noted child rights activists Dr Shantha Sinha, Founder secretary of MV Foundation and Padmashri awardee.
