On 2nd September, 2017, Food for Life Vrindavan organised a seminar for their school girls where they were educated about the importance of education about law and how they can approach the legal authorities if they face or know of any girl going through any kind of abuse. On this occasion, Ms. Pratibha Sharma, member of the Mediation Court and Mr. Sanjay Kumar Yadav, ACJM of District Court of Mathura were present who further educated the girls how they could approach them in case of any incident pertaining to any physical or mental abuse. A play was also performed by the school girls exhibiting the evil practice of Child Marriage. The performance was highly appreciated by the honorary court members. The seminar was very informative and well organised.
