RGVN facilitated an exhibition on crafts for the members of the children’s club of Byrnihat which were made by them on the occasion of World Environment Day.
The exhibition also included:
1. An awareness programme on menstrual hygiene for the adolescent girls of the club and the locality. As adolescent girls are one of the most vulnerable group of the society and are the future mothers, they need to have adequate and correct awareness regarding menstrual hygiene because this will further protect them from risk of developing reproductive or sexually transmitted infections (RTI/STI) which are indeed a burden on our society and render many females infertile and cause other adverse health outcomes. So, if proper awareness is generated at primary level, then, a healthy girl will be a healthy mother in future and will contribute to reducing maternal as well as infant mortality which will result in overall women health empowerment.
2. Raising awareness on environmental protection for the children. Primary education is a crucial stage in the development of a person’s behaviour, social awareness and selflessness. At school we learn values and behaviours that will stay with us throughout our adulthood and define who we are. That is what makes it so important to spark an interest in caring for and protecting the environment while children are still at schools. The aim of teaching children environmental education is for them to make caring for nature part of their lives, as opposed to just studying it. The idea behind this subject is for young people to develop a firm ecological mindset and use it to overcome today’s environmental challenges with a proactive attitude and a strong commitment.
