On August 29th, 17 students from the school “Mukimi” in the Kyzyl-Kyshtak Aiyl Aimak in the Kara-Suu district attended an information session on early and unregistered marriages and legal and positive aspects of registered marriages. The lawyers of the CGP partner Public Association “Law Center” provided information, which raised much interest. The participants of the session asked such questions as consequences of unregistered marriages, forced marriages, marriages with minors, and questions about marriages of citizens of two different countries and the fate of the children in case of divorce. Such sessions will be also organized for all students in grades 9-11 to raise awareness of the regulatory and legal framework for marriages and decrease number of unregistered and early marriages and the associated consequences of unregistered marriages.

Public Association “Law Center” implements the project “Women in the Present Day Society” supported by the Collaborative Governance Program, funded by USAID and DFID.
