‘Lunch with Laadli’ is held on the first and last Friday every month, and was conceptualized with a view to interact with girls during meals. By directing and motivating girls to pursue a healthy life style and aspire to lead a good life, ‘Lunch with Laadli’ promotes a nonhierarchical community, as girls come face to face with their District Collector during lunch. Under this program, the District Collector visits Government schools and interacts with girls by teaching them and answers their questions. Some girls are given cash prizes which helps them to develop confidence and motivation.
On a similar note,‘Collector’s Dialogue’ is a programme initiated by the District Collector that examines quality of the Girl Child’s education. It also focuses on increasing the self-confidence of girls. District Collector interacts with the girls on various topics like health, education, nutrition, career, self defence and Government schemes related to women’s and child welfare. Girls also receive personalized guidance, career counselling and motivation from the District Collector directly in the school’s premises, thereby promoting an atmosphere of motivation for girls.
