Jaipur: Laado Saath Kadam is another extension of “Laado” Campaign which aims to stop female foeticide and improve girl child sex ratio. It is a joint initiative of Patrika- MAG, Plan India and SRKPS and follows the PCPNDT Act . Awareness is the key to motivate and sensitize society to leave behind the preset notions and conservative traditions. MAG is working with this approach and is creating a common platform where the issues and possible solutions can be discussed, also the information related to govt schemes and new laws can be delivered directly.
At Vedic Girls P. G. College, Jaipur, the first Laado Saath Kadam chaupaal was held where 250 girls and women were present. Naveen Jain, Director of NHM informed girls about PCPNDT Act, Decoy operations, Informer Scheme and toll free no 104-108. He also motivated girls to say no to female foeticide. College Director Satyavrat Samvedi appreciated Patrika’s initiative and said that such drives helps to awaken society.
