Day of the Girl Child
Friday, October 11, 2019
International Day of the Girl Child was celebrated in Amrita SeRVe villages across India.
Primary school children rallied around the villages with slogans advocating the education of .girls and promoting their health. Taking this one step further, Rajasthan primary schools in Shyamoli and Harirampura selected two girls to play the role of principal for a day, taking charge of the school’s office activities.
Amrita SeRVe has been promoting the education and health of girls through the Swastha Kanya Saakshar Kanya, ‘Healthy Girl, Educated Girl’, campaign since 2017. The program brings about awareness in rural India on the issues affecting young girls and the need to provide complete education and appropriate healthcare for them.
