Field of Shiksha Bharati Empowerment of Girl Child with enlightenment
At the dawn of civilization when India enjoyed the position of World Leader (Vishwaguru), there was no need to organize campaigns for empowerment of women. As a matter of fact, woman was adored as Matritva Shakti (Motherhood divine). The Indian woman was a role model for women in the world.
The last millennium was the period of decline of status of women in India. The reasons for this state of affairs inculed Pardah (Veil), Sati Pratha, Child Marriage and lack of education. After independence, several organizations came forward to plead for equality of women with men and mooted the slogan of “Women Empowerment” What is needed today is not simply the equality of status of woman but also her empowerment in such a manner that she regains the status of “Motherhood Divine” thereby enabling her to lead the world. Taking note of this cherished goal, the Shiksha Bharati has visualized a Perspective Plan for Empowerment of Girl Child and has started implementing it.
The girld child goes thru a complete cycle. She is born, she is a baby, then a child, reaches adolescence and puberty, grows to be young women. Who should be educated, made responsible, confident and skilled and then become a mother herself. Shiksha Bharati provides her guidance and compomonship from her childhood to the time she takes on the world.
