Educating girls will give power to their voices: DC Udhampur



Udhampur, Jan 30: Reflecting on the importance of education of the girl child, Deputy Commissioner Udhampur Krittika Jyotsna on Monday said education will make girls responsible citizens and help them get their voices heard in society.

She said this during a function organized by District Administration Udhampur on the culmination of the Weeklong National Save Girl Child Campaign with the theme “value of girl child and rights of the child 2023”.

The campaign conducted under the aegis of the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ scheme concluded at the Conference Hall DC Office Complex.
The Deputy Commissioner was the chief guest, while District Youth Services & Sport Officer, S. Swarn Singh was the guest of honour.

Speaking on the occasion, the DC congratulated the participants and asked the stakeholders to continue to generate awareness among the masses about the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign.

She said the main objective of celebrating this day was to eradicate different types of social discrimination and exploitation that are faced by girls. “Nowadays, girls are competing with the boys in each and every field and are not lacking anywhere,” she said.

She said that such awareness programmes would help in ensuring the empowerment of women through education and equal participation in every field of human life besides preventing gender-biased sex-selective elimination of a girl child.

The DC appreciated the efforts made by social welfare departments for generating awareness among the masses. She also handed over 120 Gudda-Guddi boards to be placed in AWCs to ICDS Udhampur. Further a digital Gudda-Guddi board was installed in the DC Complex.

Earlier, District Social Welfare Officer, Kanika Gupta, who is also the Nodal Officer of BBBP, presented a welcome address and highlighted the importance of National Girl Child Day.
Later, the chief guest presented prizes to the participants.

Other participants included staff of Sakhi, Mahila Shakti Kendra, Women Cell, school children and sportspersons of district Udhampur, and inmates of Parisha Udhampur (child care institute).
