In a unique initiative ahead of the Women’s Day, the Buldhana district administration is giving an opportunity to bright girls of government schools to act as ‘collector for a day with an aim to boost their confidence and motivate them to perform better. The initiative will also make the girls aware about the functioning of the administration and how it tackles social and other issues.
“As part of the initiative, bright and meritorious girls of the zilla parishad schools are being given an opportunity to be the collector for a day and sit on the chair to have a first-hand experience of governance “Collector said. On the first day of this novel drive, Poonam Deshmukh, a bright Class 8 student from Padoli zilla Parishad School, acted as collector and oversaw the administrative work.
This would also give a chance to the girls to decide what changes they would like to bring in society, if given such an opportunity. It is an indicative collectorship wherein they will get to experience the day with a new perspective.
It is to provide them exposure towards governance and administration as “seeing is believing”. They get an exposure for a day and we also make them write a diary wherein they note down their experience and their vision for society.
