Deepa BK, 19 lives in Chhinchhu – 9, Jhilmile Tole of Surkhet district. She got married in age of 14 due to family pressure when she was studying in class 8. She left school after marriage.
After marriage, she was tortured by her husband and mother in law so she left her husband’s house and started staying with her parents. Her mother & other relatives suggested her to continue the study in the school. But she was not interested and reluctant to join the school after marriage.
Animators of Samvad Kendra (SK) motivated her to join SK. SK was established on January 2014 in her village.
