#116Stories: Children are not sources of income.

On that same day, one of our Counsellors referred the case to the District Social Work Officer, who accepted to work on the case. The DSWO followed up on different sources and confirmed that the child was going to be married off and the case was reported to the district police station and the mother was arrested. The marriage was cancelled while the investigation continued.

The police gender department and the DSWO worked together in solving the case. They explained to the mother the effects of child marriage and it's legal ramifications. A while later the neighbor called the helpline to confirm that the young girl had returned to school and was continuing with her studies. The neighbor was very appreciative to the counselor who worked on the case.
