Children in India inspire Bollywood star
Watch youth talk about advocating for their futures
Child marriage, child labour and education are topics we care about at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC), and so does Priyanka Chopra, an actress and UNICEF goodwill ambassador, as shown in a meeting she had with children in the video below.
One child explained: “Just recently, in Palika Dham, a child marriage was taking place. So, we took out a rally and a sticker campaign. The sticker said: ‘No to Child Marriage,’ and we pasted the stickers on everyone’s entrance gates…. We were able to stop child marriage.”
Christian Children’s Fund of Canada believes in providing education and leadership skills to youth, children and community members so they can advocate for lasting change.
Watch Priyanka encourage children to keep pushing forward to participate in decisions affecting their futures.
