Girl child awareness programme at Dahod, Gujarat

SETU sponsored an educational awareness program for the education of `Girl child’ amongst tribal community the villages of Dahod District.

The program was brought into action through one of our artisan groups in Gujarat. In the program, the campaigning team interacted with various girls where the team explained the benefits of girl child education not only to the girls but also to their mothers. Initially the mothers were slightly skeptical about the idea of girl child education and were not sure about it as they were of the view that its better that girls should do household work as this only will help them once they get married and there’s no use of educating them. Also if the girls get educated, it would be difficult to find a suitable match for them. These all doubts were cleared by the team and ultimately the team got them convinced
