TDI International School Supports Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Campaign
TDI International School of Kundi launched the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Campaign at Kingsbury Apartments on 8th March, 2015 to denounce the practice of female foeticide.
The campaign aimed at correcting the dim thinking of our society which considers girls as burdens and boys as important assets for the parents. The program was attended by a huge number of people who supported the school in this struggle to save and educate girl child.
Mr. Alok Edward, the principal of TDI International School along with staff members and school children hosted this event. The veteran Bollywood film star Mr. Raj Babbar was the chief guest of this event who shared his thoughts on welfare of girl child through a video message.
Apart from this, the event also got support from many other prominent personalities including Mr. Rajinder Taneja, Mr. Dinesh Jindal, Mr. AkshayTaneja and Mr. Alok Edward.
The students of TDI International School performed a nukkad natak, a group song, a dance performance and poem narration which were appreciated by all. Students also shared their thoughts on the importance of girl child and expressed their support to this significant event. A rally was also organizedto promote the safety and education of girl child in our country. To support this noble cause, TDIIS gave free admission to one girl child which was appreciated by all.
The program ended with a speech from the principal in which he stated “We teach gender respect in our school so that our students may become good parents one day. Education of girl child is equally important as they are the ones who feed the family with seeds of integrity and civilization by playing the roles of mother, sister, daughter and a wife.”
Mr. Edward also added “TDI International School is taking measures to extend support in this vital campaign launched by our respected Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi.”
