Aristotle once said, “educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
Education is an essential element to transform the life of an individual into a purposeful life which is devoted towards making life simpler and more beautiful. Many girls of our country have been isolated from the education system, owing to saddening poverty state and lack of sound education facilities. Due to these tragic conditions, children, especially girls have to bear the brunt of hardships and poverty.
We talk about the gender equality and gender rights in the nation, still there are a slew of rural villages and districts where the girl child education is a remote reality. In order to mitigate the menace, a plethora of schemes and plans have been initiated in many states of the country. These schemes have been implemented in a comprehensive manner, thereby bolstering the education system in the country. The state of Rajasthan is no exception.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje ushered in the ‘Mukhya Mantri Hamari Beti Yojana’ in nexus with this cause driven by education. Through this phenomenal scheme, the government of Rajasthan aims to touch and transform the lives of all meticulous girls, who have the potential of performing brilliantly at school and in all other spheres of life.
Mukhya Mantri Hamari Beti Yojana
Under this scheme, atleast two girls are selected from tenth standard in each district, with one girl ranking first in the district and the other ranking first among the BPL.
The scheme will encompass sound financial support for these girls. Under the scheme, these will be provided with a sum of Rupees two lakh. This scheme aims to benefit meritorious girl children from BPL by providing them quality education clubbed with training facilities including professional training, sports and private coaching.
Girls who obtain top three ranks in their studies will be adopted by the state government. Further education of these girls will be funded by the state government, irrespective of their career field choices.
By doing so, the state government strongly believes that it will motivate the girl’s education among the parents. It is a long-lasting motivation for the girl students to perform better on all front, more specifically targeting the education front.
