Thank you Meena, I updated the post and added the link to the video that served as an analogy to this idea.

Thank you Meena for your comments. There is not much information about the Internet users in Uzbekistan, what we know is that it is increasing. A lot of youth are using mobile technologies to access Internet. In the online project that we conducted we saw people from various communities, about 15% of applicants responded that they are unemployed right now. The problem of early and forced marriages affects both poor and middle-income communities in Uzbekistan. We strongly believe that this initiative will have a ripple effect in terms of information dissemination, as well as behavior changes. Peer-to-peer information dissemination system will be very effective in outreaching to girls from low income communities. But the organizations that we partner with will also help to outreach to those, who may not ,otherwise, have opportunities to access to our services.
