International Day of the Girl Child” Awareness Programme

On 11TH September 2017 CSN Urban team conducted awareness programme in VM Ranga Rao VMC Girls High school Krishna lanka on the Occasion of International Day of the Girl Child in collaboration with CRAF.

 

Mr. Benjamin convened over the programme by welcoming Mrs. Grace School Headmistress, Mr. Malleswara Rao Programme Manager NJBB and the children. He later explained about the activities of child safety net programme and about Pro child Group Activities for being a volunteer of the group.

 

Mrs. M. Grace Headmistress said that encouraging a girl child in progressive way will bring light in to her future. Parents should not discriminate between the girl and the boy and girls should be given equal opportunity to participate. She told that girls should have balanced and nutritious diet to be healthy, strong and should be self confident. She urged the students not to drop out of the school and ruin their bright future as education is must for the overall development of the child.

 

Following this Mr. Malleswara Rao explained about the importance of International Day of the Girl Child stating that since its inception in 2012, October 11 the day aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girl’s face, while promoting girls' empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights. This year’s theme is “The Power of the Adolescent Girl: Vision for 2030.” The International Day of the Girl Child gives people and organizations the opportunity to raise public awareness of the different types of discrimination and abuse that many girls around the world suffer from. The observation supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by girls all over the world based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination.

 

The celebration of the day also "reflects the successful emergence of girls and young women as a distinct cohort in development policy, programming, campaigning and research. Mr. Malleshwara Rao also explained about the child rights and concluded with briefing about NJBB activities in Vijayawada and Krishna District for the care and protection of the children. At the end poster on Girl Child with a caption “GENDER EQUALITY IS POSSIBLE” was released and the programme came to an end with a vote of thanks by Mrs. Rama Devi CSN Urban field facilitator.
