A GIRL – ENRICH HER LIFE'
Education & Vocational Training for the Girl
adverse attitude towards the girl child signals
a catastrophe of serious demographic imbalance
and degeneration of socio-economic conditions.
In our male dominated society, girls are denied
equal access to food, health care, education,
employment and even simple human dignity. Here
sacrifice and dedicated services ensure the well-being
of the family, but in return, the girl receives
neglected childhood devoid of proper education,
health care or even happiness.
India, the overall, girls' attendance lags severely
behind that of boys. One of the major reasons
why so many girls do not attend school is because
of their workload, both within and outside the
household. Daughters are often kept at home to
help the family because the social and economic
value of educating girls is not recognized. It
is a fact that amongst the world's exploited child
workers, girls outnumber boys.

and skills needed to advance their status. By
