A young girl sits amongst a sea of students in a classroom, but one thing distinguishes her from the rest: sindoor, the red powder on her forehead indicating her married status. Reena (name changed) was barely past the 9th standard when she was pressurized to get married. In this extraordinary story of courage, Reena fought back to continue her education, determined to stand on her own two feet and not let what happened with her repeat with her four sisters. Breakthrough is transforming communities across the states of Bihar and Jharkhand in India, using media, leadership trainings, and community engagement to end early marriage.
