The youth of Khar Bamaniya (a village near Udaipur) have titled the project ‘Mann Ki Awaaz,’ which means ‘Voice from My Heart’.
"It is easier to build stronger children than to repair broken adults," goes one saying. Look at Us! wants to catalyze youth and remind them of their potential, changing the way they see themselves; and how they are seen by others. We want to let each teen know they matter.
The youth in Rajasthan identified child marriage as the main issue facing them that they wanted to have addressed. The video showcases the process and learnings they put together over the course of the month to raise their concerns and have their voices on this issue, heard. Our experience working with the enthusiastic teenagers of Khar Bamaniya village has truly left us spellbound! Together, we're learning new things and inspiring each other every day.
