The Changeloomers: Pratima

Share: facebook share twitter share
Theme: Changelooms, Youth

Pratima was married at the age of 15. An abusive husband, a tear in her uterus during childbirth, and a high-risk operation followed. She is determined not to let other young dalit girls from her community face the same story, empowering them through various channels (including football) to become independent, confident and able to stand up for themselves.

Pratima was supported by PACS as part of Changelooms - a year-long leadership programme for 100 passionate and enthusiastic young people who were supported and mentored to lead projects that addressed social exclusion within their communities. The programme was run in association with youth organisations Pravah and Commutiny - the Youth Collective.
