National Girl Child Day: 24 January

National Girl Child Day: 24 January

The National Girl Child Day is celebrated in India every year on January 24.

The day was first initiated in 2008 by the Ministry of Women and Child Development.

The objective is to highlight the inequalities faced by girls, promote awareness on a range of topics including rights of a girl child, importance of education, health, and nutrition.

Gender discrimination is a huge problem which includes vast areas including inequality in education, legal rights, and honour, to name a few.

The day in 2019 is celebrated with theme of “Empowering Girls for a Brighter Tomorrow”.

Haryana would be awarded for its good performance for the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ initiative of the national government.
