STATE TIMES NEWS RAJOURI: On the directions of District Development Commissioner Rajouri, Mohd Nazir Sheikh and under the supervision of DSEO and Nodal Officer of BBBP and MSK Rajouri, Bilal Rashid Mir, District Level Centre for women (DLCW) distributed stationery items among poor girl students under Beti Bachao Beti Padhao. The stationary kit included stationary items like notebooks, pencil box, pens, sharpeners, erasers, instrument box etc. District Level Centre for Women(MSK) headed by Anum Mirza (Women Welfare Officer, Rajouri) came forward with this initiative to provide free stationary kits among girl students of underprivileged section of Panchayat Saroo and Guni of District Rajouri as the education of students has been affected by the closure of schools due to covid 19 pandemic and poverty is the another reason which restricts girls to have even the basic education. Moreover, girls who are able to go to school often avoid schooling frequently because of unavailability of the material required for education. The MSK team made an effort and shortlisted some poor girl students, with assistance provided by Sarpanchs of different areas. The MSK team said that some parents cannot afford even basic books and notebooks for their children which has resulted in a large number of girl dropouts from school. Anum Mirza (WWO) said that, “empowerment will come only when we educate the girl child. An educated girl has the ability to bring socio- economic changes and contribute towards the prosperity and development of a country”. District coordinators of Mahila Shakti Kendra, Sanjana Thakur and Nazma Sheikh also urged girl’s parents to provide proper education to their girl children and there should be no gender disparity in getting education, as education is the right of every child whether it is a girl or a boy. They also stressed upon the importance of value education.
