NISHULK SHIKSHA BALIKA VISHESH
The report “Children Still Battling to go to School” states that about 57 million children around the world are not going to school; 55% of that population being girls.
In 2009, 15 underprivileged girls hailing from Below Poverty Line (BPL), Scheduled Caste (SC) & Scheduled Tribes (ST) categories were selected to receive education at SIS, Ranchi. The number of beneficiaries of Balika Vishesh has risen to 35. The girls are trained in sports, computers, and extra-curricular activities. The idea behind this project is the empowerment of the girl child who has been subjected to gender inequality and injustice.
After all, as the African proverb goes, “If we educate a boy, we educate one person. If we educate a girl, we educate a family – and a whole nation”.
