Cultural Campaign Against Sumangali Scheme in Villages

Cultural programmes were organized in 30 villages in Kaladdad, Manur and Alangulam Panchayat Unions in Tirunelveli district and 20 High Schools in rural areas in these unions.  A trained cultural team performed street plays, sang folk songs and dances on the negative impact of Sumangali Scheme and importance of girl child education.


  • Nearly 5000 girl students, who witnessed our cultural performances came out openly saying that they would pursue their studies and in no circumstances, they would go for the mill work under the scheme and the impact of the cultural programmes was profound on them
  • The field staff could witness an increased realization among female members about the importance of girl child education in the working area
  • The Panchayat Presidents, ward members and councilors, School Head Masters, were very much interested in organizing similar programmes in other nearby villages too
  • Increased awareness among rural people, and Hr. Sec. School students on the negative impact of Sumangali Scheme
