Newly engaged youth below India’s legal

Newly engaged youth below India’s legal age of marital consent offer sweets to each other in the village of Vadia, some 210kms north of Ahmedabad on March 11, 2012. Eight young women whose mothers are sex workers were married in a so-called “village of prostitutes” in India on March 11, under a plan to save them from being pushed into the world’s oldest profession. The event, held in the village of Vadia in the western state of Gujarat, was organised by Vicharta Samuday Samarthan Manch (VSSM), a non-profit group which works with marginalised nomadic communities.
