Child Marriage in Malaysia

Child Marriage robs children of their childhood and can result in serious long-term consequences on their lives and health. 

Help us Ban Child Marriage in Sarawak!

SWWS is gathering petition signatures to call on the government to ban child marriages in Sarawak. The petition signatures will be presented to the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly (Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak).

Sign the petition at the entrance of our Bukansalahkamek exhibition (at Old Court House, Kuching). Our volunteers will be there to assist from 11am till 8pm (until the end of our exhibition on 31st October 2022).
