Its time to take Action, Its time to Say No, If you feel You dont like something wrong Happening accross You or with you. You Have the Right to take Decision on your own if somebody forces you do something which you feel is wrong, Don't be quite when someone abuses you, Dont tolerate Domestic Violence just because you are dependant, Dont Think You are alone and tolerate all the cruel things happening to you because you are a Girl. Every girl/Women has the Right to Freedom, Right to Survive,Right to Express and Right to Education, but still you will find a different world accross you where girls/womens are still facing issues in the society. Me and My organization NGO PraveenLata Sansthan have pledged to educate the adolscent girls and womens in the community who feel there is noone to hear them,guide them or support them. We at PraveenLata Sansthan through Mission Jagriti Educate adolcent Girls/Womens accross the community on Personal Safety, Health & Hygeine and Promote Education accross Rajasthan to sensetize the upcoming generation to build a prosperious nation. All this is done just by conducting workshops, roadshows, rallies, nukkad nataak, activities, etc in slums,villages,communities etc I belive to create a Safe Place for Women to live in and is Empowered.. DO support me in my journey


Why focus on adolescent girls?

Adolescent girls in India are a largely invisible population and extremely vulnerable. Dominant behaviors and mindsets about adolescent girls are fairly universal across India and are manifested in key aspects of their lives – gender-based discrimination, early marriage and pregnancy, lack of education and a dearth of formal employment opportunities.

However, girls are essential agents of change in breaking the cycle of poverty and deprivation. By investing in their economic potential through education and by delaying child marriage, multiple issues such as maternal mortality, child survival, gender-based violence and HIV can be resolved and the cycle of poverty can be broken. Focusing on girls translates into better futures for women, children and families, thereby creating intergenerational impact.

    You are right, Bharti, in beginning with the adolescent females. They must know their rights in order to achieve the fullness of their power.
