About Kanya Shiksha Pravesh Utsav
The Women and Child Development Ministry, in collaboration with the Education Ministry, has introduced the Kanya Shiksha Pravesh Utsav scheme. Only four lakh out-of-school teenage females visit Anganwadis for nutrition, nutrition education, and skilling, according to data supplied by Women and Child Development Secretary Indevar Pandey.

The programme will help to achieve the goal of the Right to Education Act, which is to reintegrate out-of-school females into the system. Pandey has voiced his optimism and claimed that the department is working hard to achieve a strong position and return all of the girls to the regular school system as soon as possible.

About the launch event

The Ministry of Women and Child Development, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and the United Nations Children’s Fund(UNICEF), began the campaign on the eve of International Women’s Day (8 March 2022).

Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani, National and State Secretaries from the Ministry of Women and Child Development and the Ministry of Education, as well as other leaders from throughout the country, attended the launch ceremony. Many adolescent girls also attended the inaugural ceremony and discussed their reintegration into school experiences.

At the conclusion of the event, all dignitaries signed the ‘Sankalp ki Deewar’ commitment wall to commemorate the occasion as a guarantee that no girl will be denied formal education.

Concerning the campaign

  • The initiative aims to improve the number of adolescent girls (girls aged 11 to 14) who enroll and stay in school. The programme builds on current initiatives for girls, such as BetiBachaoBetiPadhao (BBBP), the National Education Policy (NEP), and the Scheme For Adolescent Girls (SAG), among others.
  • The campaign will be carried out as part of the BetiBachaoBetiPadhao (BBBP) project of the Ministry of Women and Child Development.
  • Under the BBBP Scheme, the government plans to subsidise 400 districts across all states to encourage families to enrol teenage girls in school.
  • The effort would also use funds from the Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan. Anganwadi workers (AWWs) would also be rewarded for referring out-of-school females.
