Girls-Education, Health & Marriage

At Sehra bandhan, we have a dream, a dream that every mother delivers safely, every girl has the right to future of her own choosing and that every women has access to quality health care education and sanitation.

A.EDUCATION

"Educate a man, you educate one person, educate a woman, you educate a complete family."

There are many reasons that prevent girls from going to school. Poverty, pregnancy, school-based violence, early marriage and discriminatory gender norms are some of the major obstacles to girls education worldwide. School fees, the threat of violence on the way to and in school, domestic work keep girls out of school. Pregnancy and early marriage cut short adolescent girls' schooling before they have completed secondary school.

Reports estimate that more than 50 percent of girls in India fail to enroll in school and those who do are likely to drop out by the age of 12.In other aspects, the girl child is also discriminated against extensively in the right to education, even basic at times.

           

In 1994, the Government of India passed a universal female education bill that offers parents incentives for access and punishment for keeping a girl out of school.

Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi has launched a nationwide campaign named "Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao" (means Save the Girl Child and Educate her). This campaign was launched by him to spread awareness in the society for women empowerment through education.



Sehrabandhan is also heartily inspired with the mission "Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao" and our team is dedicated for this work


B. HEALTH

  • Improved knowledge, attitudes and practices for enhanced health seeking behaviour amongst adolescents, especially girls.
  • Improved quality of primary health services for the urban poor.
  • Our service is executed in stipulated timeframe.
HYGIENE (SWAKSHATA ABHIYAN)
  • We provide wash facilities and improved hygiene practices at home especially for girls and women with safe access to drinking water sources and sanitation.
  • We help by the giving the tips of hygiene to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases. Hygiene therefore includes a specific set of practices associated with preservation of good health
  • Improved quality of primary health services for the urban poor.
C. MARRIAGE

There are many families who cannot afford to get a good match for their girls we are supporting them.
Education is one of the most powerful tools to delay the age at which girls marry as school attendance helps shift norms around child marriage.

Improving girls' access to quality schooling will increase girls' chances of gaining a secondary education and helps to delay marriage. When a girl in the developing world receives seven or more years of education, she marries on average four years later.

That women might have the chance of a healthier and happier life should be reason enough for promoting girls' education. However, there are also important benefits for society as a whole. An educated woman has the skills, information and self-confidence that she needs to be a better parent, worker and citizen.
