The project “Transforming The lives of Adolescent Girls”

The project “Transforming The lives of Adolescent Girls” was supported by “American Jewish World Service (AJWS) for a period of one year i.e. from 1st September to 31st August in Kishanganj block of Baran district. The reason of selecting the block was due to preponderance of ‘Saharia’ primitive Tribe caste in the block. The end-line survey of the project revealed that marriage age increased in selected villages. Moreover, the women’s group “Jagrit Mahila Sangthan” earlier developed by FED made efforts in liberation of 135 families bonded labourer, but liberation certificate could not be awarded. During the period efforts were made to get their liberation certificates and 65 certificates were awarded.
