Government is keen for a ecosystem that enables overcoming the language barrier between users and potential users,” he said.
To commemorate the International Day of the Girl Child on October 11, a UN-declared international observance day to support greater opportunities for girls and end gender discrimination, teenage girls from marginalised communities stepped into the roles of traffic policemen and manned the traffic in the national Capital.European Union Ambassador to India, Tomasz Kozlowski inaugurated the takeover and distributed badges to the girls. He said, “Ensuring that girls feel respected and valued in society is the first step to breaking down the barriers of discrimination. Today, on International Day of the Girl Child, we remember that empowering girls and women is not just our moral duty, it is also the solution to many of the greatest challenges we face in the quest for development and peace: Investing in girls is investing in peace and prosperity”.

By occupying such spaces and places where they are rarely seen or heard, it is a step towards promoting gender inequality and claiming their rights.”Besides manning traffic, the girls also took over important roles even in corporate houses, media publications and radio stations for a day, last week to commemorate International day of the Girl Child. Going forward, 10 metro stations in Delhi will also have signage and people will be requested to pledge their support for a safer Delhi, from October 11-20.

She has been involved with Plan India as a youth advocate for the past four years, ensuring that her community is safer for girls and that they are more aware of their rights.

Doing this together allows us to share our challenges and innovative ideas to overcome them.”
