 Context: NTPC launches a new edition of the Girl Empowerment Mission, aligning with the Government of India’s Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao initiative. The program aims to tackle gender inequality by nurturing girls’ imaginations and offering them opportunities for development.

 

Starting April 2024, nearly 3,000 underprivileged children will benefit from the 1-month workshop across 42 locations, totalling over 10,000 beneficiaries. It will include programmes for empowering girls through leadership development and holistic skill-building in health, hygiene, safety, fitness, sports, and yoga.
