Rajesh Sood Posted over 2 years ago What projects can help girls in developing countries? I recently had the opportunity of interacting with a group of NSS students of age group 16-18 years at Rajpur, about 50 kn from Dharamshala. We engaged with children, on a dialogue on self realisation (not spiritual) - with focus to expose them to communication and personality development. We also brainstormed on problems of society and how each of us can contribute towards change personally. I learnt form this experience that girl children need to be engaged in dialogue on their vision, aim, skills needed for achieving the goals- sot hat they have clarity of purpose- and can focus their energy. Also interventions for personality development of girl children in government schools is the need of the hour. More important, is to sesnsitise the teacher and male children also on gender issues, and there is denial of gender issues esp among males. presently teachers are not trained to address these issues. Some social activists can facilitate small changes and create models.
