Girl with A Veil........ No to Child Brides

Girl with A Veil…….. No to Child Brides

CIAI (Italian Centre for Aid to Children), a ​​non-profit organization, has started an SMS campaign in Italian media with one of my photos to raise funds destined for a project against child marriage in India. In association with Butterflies, an NGO from New Delhi, the project will promote gender equality among children and adolescents (780 in total including 390 girls; 30 teenagers each from 26 villages) of the Andaman Islands, India through programmes of education and awareness. The project aims to increase the rate of school attendance of girls (especially in secondary schools), to promote vocational training for girls and to make them aware regarding gender discrimination and abuse through specific sex education programmes.

From 17 March to 12 April you can send an SMS to this number 45505 (2 € by phone) to raise funds destined for this project. Face of the campaign is Joel Dix, star of the commercial radio and TV. Other prominent characters in the world of entertainment as Amelia Maria Monti, Pamela Villoresi, Columbro Marco, Gianluca Guidi, Giampiero Ingrassia, Marco Ardemagni, also supporting the campaign.
