Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Scheme
Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Save girl child, educate a girl child) is a social campaign of the Government of India that aims to generate awareness and improve the efficiency of welfare services intended for girls. The scheme was launched with an initial funding of ₹100 crore (US$15 million).
The Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (BBBP) scheme was launched on 22 January 2015 by Modi. It aims to address the issue of the declining child sex ratio image (CSR) and is a national initiative jointly run by the Ministry of Women and Child Development, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and the Ministry of Human Resource Development. It initially focused multi-sector action in 100 districts throughout the country where there was a low CSR.
Dibang Valley district has seen the highest improvement in sex ratio after the implementation of the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (BBBP) scheme, Women & Child Development Director TP Loyi has informed. Addressing an orientation workshop on BBBP at the Administrative Training Institute here on Tuesday, Loyi said Dibang Valley is one of the 100 gender-critical districts in the state.
“Before the launch of the BBBP scheme, the child sex ratio of Dibang Valley was 889 girls per 1000 boys, which has increased to 1125 girls per 1000 boys by 31 August, 2017,” she informed.
