Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao

(Save girl child, educate girl child)

 

Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Save girl child, educate girl child) is a Government of India scheme that aims to generate awareness and improving the efficiency of welfare services meant for women. The scheme was initiated with an initial corpus of Rs100 crore.

According to census data, the child sex Ratio (0–6 years) in India was 927 girls per 1,000 boys in 2001, which dropped drastically to 918 girls for every 1,000 boys in 2011. A 2012 UNICEF report has ranked India 41st among 195 countries.

The Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (BBBP) Scheme has been introduced in October, 2014 to address the issue declining Child Sex Ratio (CSR). This is being implemented through a national campaign and focussed multi sectoral action in 100 selected districts low in CSR, covering all States and UTs. This is a joint initiative of Ministry of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and Ministry of Human Resource Development.

Speaking on the occasion of International Day of the Girl Child, Prime Minister Modi, called for the eradication of female foeticide and invited suggestions from the citizens of India on "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" on the MyGov.in portal.

Prime Minister Modi launched the programme on 22 January 2015 from Panipat, Haryana.

Since coordinated and convergent efforts are needed to ensure survival, protection and empowerment of the girl child, Government has announced Beti Bachao Beti Padhao initiative.

Sashastra Seema Bal is deployed on Indo-Nepal, Indo-Bhutan Borders, LWE Areas and on security duties in J&K. The most of the part of deployment is very interior and rural area which is deprived of various basic and communicational facilities. So Director General SSB has voluntarily took the responsibility to educate the rural masses through various Civic Action Programmes by  personal contacts and meetings. Girls and women are given top priority and stress given to empower them. Initially the schools are adopted and toilets constructed in co-educational schools keeping in mind to facilitate the girl child. All Frontiers of SSB are working in this mission religiously. Under Medical Civic Action Doctors of SSB are speaking to women folks and educating them about the health, hygiene and cleanliness. Regular health check-up are being done in the rural areas. Special Educational Excursion tours are being planned for girls, Various kind of vocational trainings such as Beautician, Cookery, Bakery, Tailoring, Computer Education etc are being imparted to the girls.
