Kishoris in the organization informed that Neha’s family had fixed her wedding. They added that the prospective bride was a minor and marriage at this stage would weaken her mentally and physically. The marriage alliance had the entire village’s support.
Kishoris were asked to make a decision by themselves. A day before the wedding, a kishori(name withheld) rang the police station about the wedding. The police took immediate action and stopped the wedding. Neha’s father consented in writing to allow her education and send her to the Kishori group. He admitted that due to burdening dowry amount; he rushed into getting her married.
Today Neha is an active member of our collective.
