With support from UNFPA, FIDA has developed original Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials for preventing and ending child marriages.
As a part of a Health and Hygiene promotion campaign in the surrounding areas, FIDA arranged a debate competition for school children in Tehsil Paharpur of District D.I.Khan. Eight students from four different schools participated in the final competition.
The following students won prizes for their participation:
1st Prize - Noman Shah (Model School)
2nd Prize - Sanullah (City Science School)
3rd Prize - Muhammad Riaz (Gov't High School No. 2)
The debate competition was followed by a town clean up activity with the participation of all the school children.
