National Girl Child Day is celebrated every year in India on January 24. This day aims to raise awareness among people about exploitation, equality, discrimination faced by the girls in society. It is celebrated to provide support and new opportunities to the girls in the country. Indian National Girl Child Day was first initiated in 2008 by the Ministry of Women and Child Development. Infact, the most essential motive behind celebrating this day is to spread awareness about girl child’s rights and increase awareness on the importance of girl education and their health and nutrition.
