Bains said, “In our continued efforts to transform gender behaviour in the state and achieve gender parity, our government has taken this initiative. Currently, the ‘Chanan Rishman’ programme is being implemented in 6,250 schools across the state. The integration of the gender curriculum in the education system will create a ripple effect as we are optimistic that these learnings will be significant in shifting gender norms and behaviours of our students, who will grow up to become powerful agents of positive change in the state and beyond.
