Girl Child School Enrollment
The Centre organised a campaign for ‘Girl Child School Enrollment and Education Promotion Programme’ in Chittorgarh and Bhilwara districts of Rajasthan, from July 01-15, 2006.
First, the identification of girls, who were denied school education was carried out followed by direct contact with the parents and guardians. Under the campaign, wall writing, education awareness, chaupal meetings, education awareness rallies and meetings with school teachers etc., were conducted and efforts were made to raise awareness on education in the community.
Also, by organising the girl child enrollment programme in the selected villages, the Centre made an effort to connect the girl child to schools with the cooperation from villagers, people’s representatives, education and administrative officials.
Due to this campaign, a total of 147children in Chittorgarh and Bhilwara districts were enrolled in the schools, including 77 girls and 70 boys. In addition, committees consisting of social workers, peoples’ representatives, teachers and community leaders were formed to take care of retention of the enrolled students.
