The event was really awakening for the students to work against gender discrimination and to take initiative to remove all the inequalities, beginning with their own vicinity.

National Girl Child Day was initiated in 2008 by the Ministry of Women and Child Development. The main objective behind is to highlight the inequalities faced by girls, to promote awareness including the rights of a girl child, the importance of education, health and nutrition. According to the National Crime Records in 2011 there were greater than 2,30,000 reported incidents of crimes against women, while in 2015 there were over 3,00,000 reported incidents - a 44% increase.

Various events are organised every year all across the country to celebrate Girl Child Day to promote education and equal status in society. The Govt of India also organises several campaigns to increase consciousness of “Save the Girl Child.”
