RSKS India celebrated International Day Of Girl Child with excitement and new energy as the world is home to more than 1.1 billion girls under the age of 18, who are poised to become the largest generation of female leaders, entrepreneurs, & change-makers the world has ever seen. This year the theme of celebration was “My Daughter ~ My Pride” and the following activities were conducted under the celebration in 2 remote villages with around 75 people:-
Rangoli Making:- RSKS India team members encouraged the youth girls of the 2 rural remote villages to prepare rangoli on the occasion of #InternationalDayOfGirlChild in order to showcase their art and also spread a beautiful message to the society. The Young girls prepared a beautiful rangoli and people, village official came and saw their rangoli and appreciated them for their creative work. RSKS India also gave them prizes in order to motivate them and build up their confidence so that they can always speak their thoughts in front of everyone.
Pink Ribbon Campaign:- RSKS India’s initiative of Yuva Saathi Club (Young Friends Club) played an initial role in the celebration of International Day Of Girl Child as all the young girls of Yuva Saathi Club came together and took an oath to protect each other and tied pink ribbon on each other’s hand. This gave a strong message to the rural community that all the girls together can protect each other.
Fruitful Tree Distribution & Plantation:- RSKS India distributed fruitful trees to the daughter of the families residing in the village and also all those daughters planted those trees in the village. These trees will provide healthy air, shade and fruits to the village people and also people will always remember the girl who planted the tree. This initiative was being appraised by the village officials and the community and all of them participated excitedly in the program.
Her Name Campaign:- Under this campaign, RSKS India team members wrote the name of the girl child in front of their house as name plates so that their house can be known by their names also. This initiative will increase gender equality in the village and will also change the orthodox thoughts of the village people. This initiative will form a base for girl children which will make their voice to be heard in their family as well as in the village.
My Selfie (Meri Beti, Meri Shaan):- “Meri Beti, Meri Shaan” which means MY DAUGHTER, MY PRIDE was the initiative taken in the 2 rural remote villages. Under this initiative, my selfie was taken with the parents and daughters of the family. This initiative was to change the mentality of the village people and also to make their parents feel proud of what they have.
All of these programs were encouraged and appreciated by the government officials, anganwadi workers, community people of both the villages and they thanked whole RSKS Team as they conducted these beautiful and meaningful activities in their villages in order to improve gender equality and end social evils which are prevailing in the rural remote villages till now. It is the thinking of RSKS India that International Day Of Girl Child should not be celebrated for a day only as having a daughter should always be a proud moment for everyone as without them this world can’t survive.
