Virtous Soldier of Beti Bachao Abhiyaan

Gurmukh singh is one of the main sipahi of Harayana Beti bachao Abhiyaan . I first met him approxiamtely 7 to 8 years back when i went to Ambala for training purpose on cause of Rehabilitation of rural youths .There was aprogramme being held for training of youth in Ambala . I was impressed by his loyalty and dedication towards work and his active participation for the cause . Immediately after training Gurmukh singh joined NAPM and Asha Parivar . Then arise the question of his livelihood which is very important question because he was not a paid volunteer .In nearly 20 villages we have seen that there is no arrangement for Basic computer education especially among girls , which is very popular among youths . Then we decided to open a institiute in village Durana in which 6 students were started to train on 3 computers .It was 4 years back when Asha Parivar and NAPM formaly started Beti Bachao Abhiyaan in Harayana . That time it was decided that there should be more emphasis on training of girls , which is not a small thing in rural village of Harayana .After immense efforts , today institute has 50 % girls .Now in the total 60 students 30 are girls .Today after so many years in this rural area , we can see girls moving ahead in every sphere .It is a model for all the girls .Gurmukh singh is very active in Beti Bachao Abhiyaan ands he is engaged in various Padyatra ,and campaign for for the cause of girls and he is a source of inspiration for other youth to join the abhiyaan . He is truly a virtous soldier of Abhiyaan .
