PCC MISSION MOMENTS :                                                                                       International Day of the Girl Child (Oct. 11)                                                   Poonam was only 13 years old when she learned that her parents had arranged for her to be married in a few months. In India, early marriage is a very common practice, deeply rooted in tradition. Unfortunately, it also takes away a girl’s right to a childhood, disrupts her schooling and puts her at risk of early pregnancy. Meera Devi works with PWS&D partners in Poonam’s village to empower women and girls and prevent early marriages by running sessions that address issues of gender and sexual and reproductive rights. Because of Meera’s work, Poonam’s family understands the negative impacts of early marriage. The wedding has been postponed, and a joyful Poonam is completing her schooling.                                                  PWSD helps girls decide their own future
