Trisha, who is the UNICEF celebrity advocate, interacted with adolescents and young people who are champions in stopping early marriage and ending violence against children by raising awareness in the community.
She said, “I am thrilled to meet the young champions who raised awareness in their community on the dangers and long-term impact of child marriage.
They worked with their peers to create a safety net to protect children from getting physically and sexually abused. These are trying times due to COVID-19, but it has not affected the children.”
“These efforts by the adolescent and young people are courageous and commendable. I take this opportunity to salute them for their incredible efforts,” she added.
