School children to learn about forced marriage

A CHARITY which helped nearly 250 victims of forced marriages in Hounslow last year is visiting schools to raise awareness of the issue.

JAN Trust has taken workshops about the 'inhumane act' to secondary schools and colleges across the borough, and plans to organise more in coming weeks.

The visits are part of the charity's campaign 'Mujboor' - which translates as 'forced' in Urdu - to educate people about forced marriages and encourage victims to come forward.
