For #MyLifeAt15, Strength India teamed up with Girls Not Brides to spread awareness about child marriage.
However, Strength India put our own spin on the campaign, using it as an opportunity to open conversations with the girls in our neighborhood about the importance of setting goals.
In three separate sessions, we engaged local girls in and around their family homes to discuss the things they wanted to accomplish in their lives, the barriers in their way to success, and the importance of family communication in achieving dreams. During these sessions we interacted with over 50 young women, who made signs about their teenaged goals and participated in constructive conversations with other women in their communities.
We were also extensively quoted in the global TweetChat following the #MyLifeAt15 campaign!
