24 january National Girl Child Day

Today is a very special day for all the women and girls in our country because today we celebrated National girl child day in our country.

Ministry of Women and child development the government of India took a very crucial initiative that resulted in the National girl child day in 2008.
And every year we celebrate National child day with pride and integrity, opportunity on 24 January.

The main motive or Vision, behind this initiative, is to bring equality among the genders, spread awareness about gender discrimination in society, improve the status of girls and women, the significance of girl child education, spread awareness about the rights of the girl-child, and provide assistance.

And this initiative brings a very dramatic change in our society.

After this Modi Government also took various steps and initiatives to improve the status of women in our society, to reduce discrimination among gender, bring equality, increase awareness for girl education, to abolish the practice of child marriage.

Here are few Schemes that I explained in my blog that have started by the Modi government.

1. Beti Bachao Beti padhao scheme:

Beti Bachao indicates to save the girl child and beti padhao indicates to educate the girl child. Both are very important to improve the status of women in society and it also increases self-confidence and independence for women. This fabulous scheme was started by the Modi government on 22nd January 2015 in Karnataka Haryana to increase awareness about the girl child and women welfare.

The scheme had worked amazingly and increased the awareness of girl child education among society and safety for women.
Now the girls are more educated than boys according to the sources, the gross enrollment ratio for girls in institutions is higher than boys.

2. Sukanya samriddhi yojana:

This is also a tremendous step that has been taken by the Modi government. This scheme is for girl children’s parents. And main aim behind this scheme is to encourage the girl child parents to save money for their daughters. Therefore in the future, they can enjoy a good life by educating themselves and can pay their all expenses by own.

As we all know the confidence and courage of all the girls and women’s have increased at a higher rate now we can fight for ourselves for equality, justice and We already earned a very high status in our society.
