SAROJINI NAIDU Government Girls’ PG College Mahila Adhyana Kendra organised a seminar on the topic ‘ Vilupt hoti balikayein’ (Missing Girls) on February 7 and 8 on the college premises.
Almost all students of the college attended the seminar and attendance was compulsory for PG students. The alarming rate of female foeticide in an educated people was the main focus of the seminar. Experts from Mumbai and Bhopal among other cities delivered lectures and interacted with students.
The college had recently organised a poster competition in several schools in the City including Sarojini School, Subhash School of Excellence and Kendriya Vidyalaya No 2 and prizes for this competition were distributed at this event.
Nutan College Mahila Adhyana Kendra members also recently visited tribal areas in and around Betul and Mandla where they interacted directly with Gonds, Bhils and Korku tribals.
They met women at anganwadis and held programmes to increase awareness about women and child healthcare and they also explained the importance of breast-feeding to tribal women. About 30 students and two research associates accompanied the faculty.
They concluded that the tribals of these remote villages were not able to reach urban areas due to geographical barriers like hills and hence many of them did not have any idea of facilities in urban areas, according to research associate Asha Sarkar who visited these villages. The members also taught villagers how to generate income from soyabean products.
