British Council / Youth in Action: “Right to Choose!”

We are happy to announce that MMWF received a British Council/Youth in Action grant to implement the youth awareness project “Right to Choose!”

In the framework of this project a group of young participants from our local community will research the question of forced marriages and cousin marriages through interviews with their peer, elders, and professionals working on this issue. The participants will edit all the interviews and their project experience in a documentary film that will be shown locally and in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

If you are aged 13-25 and want to volunteer for this project just contact us or come to our office and we’ll be happy for you to take part!
