Background:
In 2012, on the platform of United Nations Adolescent Girls Task Force lead by UNFPA

It was a competitive process in which five organizations were selected and SSO was among
them. SSO piloted a behaviour change communication programme at community level and
capacity building of key stakeholders such as nikhakhwan, mulla, tehsil & district authorities,
police and parliamentarians to sensitize them on the issue of early and child marriages. This
pilot project has created awareness in 10 villages of Taluka Johi, advocated for delaying
marriage and keeping girls in schools for their social and physical well being, the project has
also strengthened monitoring mechanism to curb child marriages by facilitating the process
of establishing ‘Anti- Child marriage committees’ at Union Council level and developing their
linkages with district level service provider; Human Rights Cell At District Police Office.
Project overview:
The project has three key components, one is awareness raising using interactive theatre
technique and radio messaging at the community level, second component was establishing
anti-child marriage committees at the community level as monitoring mechanism to stop
cases of early and child marriages in 10 villages of Taluka Johi. The third component was
capacity of building of journalist, nikhakhawan, tehsil/district authorities and area police to
sensitize them on the issue and take control over child marriages.
Project Outcomes:

7,483 members of community got benefit. Four advocacy walks were organized in which
1934 male/females doctors, journalists and elected representative participated. They were
briefed about the issue and as result of strong advocacy they assured their support for
establishing Anti Child Marriages Committees.
14 messages on child marriage issue were recorded on local FM radio in Sindhi language and
were on aired for two weeks during project period. The coverage of radio programme was
approx. upto 500,000 listeners in Dadu district and Tehsil Johi.
