Early Marriages

Initiative Group: „The Youth for Social Rights“

Location: Tbilisi, Georgia

Year: 2016-2017

Similar to the campaign of Gal/i organization, it also focuses on the topic of early marriages, this time in selected regions of Georgia (Samtskhe-Javakheti, Imereti, Kakheti and Tbilisi). The campaign follows up on research and analyses that have been conducted by Georgian government in the past (the members of the organization themselves work in various position within state administration).

The campaign plans to engage in the solution of the problem not only non-governmental organizations, but mainly schools and their management in the given regions, and also those young people that have significant influence on their surroundings (e.g. bloggers and YouTubers). Selected participants will also be invited to a Civic Education Camp where they will be encouraged to take part in the activities of the public campaign (writing blogs, shooting videos, distributing information materials or organizing educational activities in schools).
