Raipur: In a bid to promote the girl child, the Raigarh district administration in Chhattisgarh has come up with a unique initiative, under which women who give birth to girls at government hospitals, are given greeting cards that carry the message - ‘Save and educate girl child’.

Besides the greeting cards, which also carry the pictures of those women and their newborn daughters, their photographs are also put up on the display boards named ‘Mahtari-Noni’ (mother and girl) at these hospitals for a month for the people to see.

 

Raigarh district collector Shammi Abidi said, “The initiative was taken up under the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ scheme at 62 primary/community health centres in the district to encourage the birth of girl child as well as institutional deliveries.” From August, the district administration started giving greeting cards to the women giving birth to baby girls in these hospitals.
