Help End Child Marriages in Pakistan- Project2


Sujag Sansar Organization: Sujag= conscious= Sansar=world. Thus Sujag Sansar stands for a conscious and aware world.  Sujag team since its formation in January 2005,  is struggling with communities to curb extremists and conservative tendencies among the communities who lagged behind and did not catch up with the fast progressing world.
