Adolescent's Solidarity Against Social Evils......
By Team | RSKS India
Dear Patron !
RSKS India Family wishes you a Happy #GivingTuesday!
It is seen at the many rural areas that there are many social evils still prevailing over there. This is the dark secret of the villages which many know. The social evils like child marriage, gender based violence, eve teasing, female foeticide, domestic violence etc are common at the villages and this is the reason why these issues must be addressed. This happens due to the conservative thinking of the rural people and male dominance in the villages. The people who even try to raise voice against these are then neglected by the other village people. This all is happening in this 21st century due to lack of awareness and education at the rural villages. This could be stopped gradually but with proper awareness and consultation.
In this context, RSKS India has formed village action groups in many villages under the HER VOICE project of RSKS India. This project is run. In the village action groups, the school going children have been selected and then 2 groups are formed in a village. One group is of adolescent boys and the other group is of adolescent girls. These groups are then taught to fight against the social evils prevailing in the villages and are told to share any information related to these social evils so that RSKS India team members could do their consultation & awareness work. These groups find out the families in which new girl is born and then RSKS Team along with these group members go to their home and honor the parents of the girl children and then provide them a tree as a remark on the girl child and that tree is planted at the courtyard of the house of the family. After this, the name of the girl child is being marked on front of the house of the family.
These village action groups are able to spread the message of ending social evils from the villages to the thousands of people living in the villages and are also a step forward towards raising awareness in the villages. The village action groups were able to celebrate the birth of many new born girl children and honoring their parents which surely changed the mindset of some people living in the villages. The trees planted at the courtyard to remember the girl child would surely be providing the family shade and fruits even after the marriage of the girl child. The RSKS team is able to know the accurate information from the ground level through these groups. The monthly meetings of these groups are making these children to become more alert and vigilant which is the reason why they all took to always never ever commit or support any sort of social evils. The parents as well as the children thanked RSKS India team members for this wonderful program which is standing as a wall against the social evils.
