Mahila Shakti Kendra Pulwama holds awareness programmes on the government’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ schemes that empower women in the real sense. Organiser of the Mahila Shakti Kendra in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir said, the main intention was to put a stop to the practice of killing girl children. The second intention was to empower girls through studies so that they can make a career for themselves. The Ladli scheme launched by the PM Narendra Modi in 2015 supports girl children. She said there has been an improvement in the female ratio, now the same number of girls and boys are getting born. Today, girls are breaking the glass ceiling in every field be it science, arts, engineering, even in civil services and showing their talent. Girls are not a burden and they are equal to boys, said the organiser. The scheme is providing them financial stability.
