Formation of Adolescent Girls Clubs: Vimukti Pothnal

Adolescence is a crucial phase in the life of woman. This stage is intermediary between childhood and womanhood and it is the most eventful phase for mental, emotional and psychological well-being. The life-cycle approach for holistic child development remains unaddressed if adolescent girls are excluded from the developmental programmes aimed at human resource development.

Keeping these thoughts in mind Vimukti Pothnal has formed adolescent girls’ clubs in various targeted Schools of Manvi taluka and their main objective is to educate and guide the adolescent girls to understand and accept their physical maturity and emotional changes they undergo. They also need to take good care of themselves during this period avoiding all kinds of fear and superstitious beliefs, prevalent in the villages. They must know their rights to save themselves from child labour, child marriage, child trafficking, school dropout, etc. Nearly 650 girls, who profited from the programme expressed that they were ignorant about these things and were happy to be the members of this Adolescent girls’ clubs.
