January 24th is celebrated in India, observed as “National Girl Child Day.” Back2Back staff have organized an awareness program in partnership with Urban Primary Health Center & Project GRL. This year, 59 young women and girls were treated by doctors through the initiative. Medical professionals spoke about health and hygiene tips to the group of ladies; they also reviewed the importance of education for females and reminded them of their inherent value.
Back2Back is encouraged by the many ways young girls and teens in programming are built into through educational, social, and emotional care. Belief systems are transforming as girls of all ages better understand their worth and continue to discern their own gifts and talents.
