66% of girls in Bangladesh are married under 18. To address this, Plan supports a children's organization that works with local government, community-based organizations and others in the area to create child marriage-free zones to stop early marriage.

The children call emergency meetings whenever they hear about a child marriage, they then visit the parents to discuss the issue and inform them of the negative impact that child marriage has on a girls.
