The initiative also aims at protecting, safeguarding, supporting, and educating the girl child.Our present Prime Minister has requested every section of the society to give whole-hearted support to the “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao“ abhiyan (initiative). ‘Beth Bachao’means ‘save girl child’ and ‘Beth Padhao’ means ‘educate the girl child.’ Poor house holds, faced with choice, often choose to send their male children to school instead of female and use their service at home.So taking the serious discrepancy in the sex ratio in the state as well as the district ‘Save Girl child’ program should be taken up through massive awareness, staging rally, slogans, with the help of govt. support and the people.

4. How to save the girl child :

i. Women Empowerment: The women need to be empowered. A woman has every right to give birth to a baby. The girl child is a blessing of God. Just give her a chance, and she will make you proud with her achievements.

ii. Awareness: Every citizen of civilized society should be made aware of the fact that a girl child is as important as a boy child. If she gets the right opportunity, she can provide economic support to the family and help them to come out of poverty level.

iii. Education: Education raises the consciousness of a person. The mental pattern in favor of society should be transformed. This is the time for historic changes in the society. Both girls and boys should also read about women education.

iv. Love, respect, and equality: Girls, just like their counterparts, deserves true freedom and equality. All children, girls and boys equally, deserve to be treated with love and respect. When we truly treat someone with love, we respect their autonomy and help them to achieve the very best that they can.

v. save girl child after her birth: The girl child is not only unsafe inside her mother’s womb. Even after her birth, she has to face various hardships because of gender inequality. We must save the girl child after her birth as well. There is something that all of us can do to help girls all over the world.

4. There is need for a shift in mental attitude in favor of equality between boys and girls.

5. The belief that only a male-child can support the parents during the old age doesn’t hold true in today’s context. A girl can take care and support her family as well.

6. The family members of the girl child should come forward to protect her rights, both within and outside her home.

7. We can reach out to girls in our community and help them with their needs.

8. The physical abuse and harassment of girl child should be dealt strictly. The guilty should be punished as per the law.

9. Dowry stem should be effectively discouraged through media campaigns. Emphasis should be made to impart moral education to put an end to this evil system.

10. Doctors and other medical professions should be encouraged to behave responsibly. They should never indulge in any mal-practices such as prenatal sex determination.
