Mobile App to Fight Child Marriage Launched in Bihar.

Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, launched the "Bandhan Tod" app. It will try to create awareness on resisting child marriage and will also provide round-the-clock help to adolescent girls saying no to the practice in the form of an SOS button. The Gender Alliance is an initiative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and was started to bring together civil societies, activists, academicians, researchers, media, and others on a common platform to advocate gender equality. Use of latest technology like a mobile app is probably the first of its kind in the country to fight child marriage.
