Lakhisarai (Atmanand Singh) Under the guidance of the Women and Child Development Corporation, Ambedkar Bhawan, under the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme, Mahila Sabha was organized under the chairmanship of Child Development Project Officer Halsi Kumari Mukta in Halsi, Halsi block of Lakhisarai district. Center Administrator of One Stop Center, Poonam Kumari, said that the POCSO Act was brought in 2012 keeping in mind the complex and sensitive issues related to sexual harassment of children. The main objective of this Act is to protect children from sexual harassment and to give strict punishment to the culprit in such a case. The specialty of this Act is that the guilty person will have to present evidence that he is not guilty.
And if any woman or girl is suffering from any violence, she can come to the one-stop center and register her problem. After which immediate action is taken. You can also register your problem through the toll-free number 181. Prashant Kumar, District Coordinator of Mission Shakti, said that the Government of India has brought the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme to address concerns about gender discrimination and women’s empowerment. Through this, the aim is to improve the child-to-child ratio, ensure gender equality and women’s empowerment, stop fetal testing, ensure the survival and safety of the girl child, and encourage education and participation in the girl child. Any woman or adolescent girl can come to the District Hub office for help related to empowerment other than violence.
In the end, Child Development Project Officer Kumari Mukta said that the objective of the Mahila Sabha is for women to know about their rights and follow them. Without knowing the rights, one cannot even demand the rights. Therefore, be aware of your rights. While giving information about the daughter, he said that if there is a daughter, then there is tomorrow. Without a daughter, not only the courtyard but the whole world would become desolate. Therefore, it should be the responsibility of all of us to save our daughters. Many benefits are being given to daughters under the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme. The government is paying the expenses from the birth of the daughter until her education, taking advantage of the fact that the daughter is also becoming an officer after studying. Therefore, the daughter is not a burden but is becoming a support and the pride of the house. In the end, a collective pledge was taken for Beti Bachao and Beti Padhao. Many women and maids, including gender expert Naveen Kumar, block coordinator Kanhaiya Kumar, female supervisor Soni Kumari, Asha Kumari, operator Noorul Hoda, Rakesh Kumar, attendant Vijay Kumar Paswan, maid Pooja Kumari, Rama, Sangeeta, Ragini, and many others, were present on the occasion.
