Laadli Week - is a joint initiative by entertainment channel STAR Plus and KC Mahindra Educational Trust. Under this programme, they will educate 600 underprivileged young girls in Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan. These girls are a part of Project Nanhi Kali, an initiative by the KC Mahindra Educational Trust. Starting this year, Laadli Week would be an annual affair. How do you feel about such a noble effort...? and what are other ideas that come to your mind to work for the welfare of our nation...?

Hi Siddharth...this is indeed a great effort. Im a teacher and I have come across many such students who aspire to study but do not have the financial capability. Such campaigns are really generous. We always blame our Indian government for many things, but today after reading your post I really appreciate this measure taken up by my countrymen. There are many ideas flocked in my mind, but we do have some limitations. There are many villages in Jharkhand where, literacy rate is quite low. I would love to initiate some educational programmes there, if I get help from eminent individuals. A little thought and encouragement brings difference and we too can create a better place for the upcoming generation, only if the surrounding is supportive...Isnt it...???.........waiting to read more replies in this section...
Education is a must for average Indian population, but did we ever think which spheres of the social aspects need more attention... Population Education Project was initially started in the year 1987 as an integral part of Adult Education Programme with the financial assistance of United Nations Fund for Population Activities UNFPA . Three phases of the Population Education Project has been successfully completed. The project has tremendous potential in promoting the targeted Population & Development Education themes as fixed by UNFPA. The funding from UNFPA was discontinued in December 2001. In view of the high rate participation of women in literacy programmes, significant of the issues like gender equality, reproductive health and rights, family life education, sexual health education, HIV/AIDS for the out of school youth, etc, it has been decided to give continued support to the Population Education Project during the Tenth Plan also. Population Education Project has also been integrated as a part of SRC Scheme. The Population Education Units have also been evaluated by the external evaluating agencies as a part of State Resource Centre. All the external evaluating agencies appreciated the efforts and the contribution made by the Population Education Units to the out of school youth. Population and Development Education is being implemented through the State/Regional Resource Centres for Adult Education, National Documentation Centre located at Indian Adult Education Association, New Delhi and Regional Documentation Centres located in the State Resource Centres of Hyderabad and Jaipur. Population and Development Education Cells were created in all the 25 State/Regional Resource Centres of Hyderabad, Guwahati, Patna ADRI & Deepayatan , Delhi, Ahmedabad, Rohtak, Shimla, Srinagar, Mysore, Thiruvananthapuram, Bhopal, Indore, Aurangabad, Pune, Shillong, Bhubaneshwar, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Chennai, Lucknow and Kolkata for this purpose. Later, three more PDE Cells were sanctioned to the SRCs of Ranchi, Agartala & Dehradun. Some of my friends and myself work for the local schools in Punjab and also help in collecting old books and stationaries for poor children in our localities..............

I would like to add some recent updates to this Laadli campaign...With Sabki Ladli Bebo, Star Plus have announced the Laadli Week from 3rd April-9th April and further they have also joined hands with NGO called Nanhi Kali with the tagline called Celebrating the Girl Child. In a press meet veteran actor Kanwaljeet Singh supported this noble cause of educating girls in the remote areas of India. About the show the actor told us, the most beautiful miracles, the greatest joys, the extra sunshine, laughter and happiness is all because of a daughter in my life. The Laadli Week will see a series of fund-raising and awareness creation events for the Laadli Project. The activity will be promoted through on air contests wherein the viewers would be asked to support the cause and later on the viewers will be invited to send in pictures of their Laadli daughters and a message for them and the best messages will be aired on the show, Sabki Laadli Bebo , during the laadli week.
