State Resource Centre for Women (SRCW) under the aegis of the Nagaland State Social Welfare Board (NSSWB) organised a program on October 11 at Mt. Hermon Higher Secondary School Kohima to commemorate the “International Day of the Girl Child” under the theme, “With Her: A Skilled Girl Force”.

A press release by SRCW stated that its state coordinator, Gracy Aye, introduced the “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” (Save the Girl Child; Educate her) and the Nagaland Adolescent Girls’ Club (NAGC) and she spoke about the different forms of violence that were taking place every day against girls and women. A topic on Child Sexual Abuse and Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act 2012 (POCSO) was highlighted by Ajabu Tungoe of SRCW. Giving a briefing on the importance of the Act, Tungoe cautioned that child sexual abuse could occur anywhere including the schools, at home or in the streets. Renthunglo Kikon, of 181 Women Helpline, while deliberating on safe sex and healthy lifestyle said one should not shy away from attaining information on sex education.

Cerina Belho, of Women Helpline, explained to the girls the importance of health and personal hygiene and the developmental changes they undergo during the adolescent stage.  A brief introduction on 181 Women Helpline, a 24 hour emergency response service and Sakhi- One Stop Centre that provides integrated support for women affected by violence was presented by Chothalü Phesao and Toli K Assumi respectively.  A short demonstration on sexual abuse was shown to the students on how the Women Helpline and Sakhi- One Stop Centre functions. The act further exhibited how cases were tackled and referred to appropriate agencies. The research officer of SRCW, Meneno V, chaired the program and elaborated on the theme while the associate director of Mt. Hermon Higher Secondary School, Wunchipem Raman, thanked the SRCW for conducting the special workshop for students.
