Duration : Annually
Location : North Sikkim, Sikkim
Key Stakeholders : Department of Sports & Youth Affairs, Sports Associations, NHPC Hydro Power Project, Adolescent Girls
The District Task Force (DTF) of North Sikkim initiated sports competitions at various levels in the District to boost the morale and confidence of girls involved in sports. With the objective of promoting awareness about Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (BBBP) sports competitions targeting the Girl Child also focused on providing girls with a platform to showcase their talent in sports, thereby encouraging them to pursue sports as a career. The following activities were conducted:
A clarion call was made to the public to witness the sports competitions that were organized for girls.
The DTF in close collaboration with the Department of Sports & Youth Affairs, Government of Sikkim, Sports Associations and individuals associated with sports were collectively responsible for the success of this initiative under BBBP.
Till date, 800 girls have participated in the various sports activities that were organized by the District Administration. The confidence levels and capacities of girls were enhanced.
Infrastructure facilities were of poor quality. With the support of corporate partners and voluntary contributions, the DTF was able to effectively organize various events.
There is a possibility of converging with ‘Khelo India’, a scheme run by the Government of India for organizing sports activities that are targeted at the Girl Child. Khelo India can be used to provide a platform to the Girl Child, further develop her talents and enable her to pursue sports as a career. Recognizing martial arts as one of the best forms of self defence for women will also boost the Girl Child’s confidence.
