STAR Education in collaboration with Ibotonsana Hr Sec School celebrated International Day of the Girl Child on 11th October, 2023 under the theme “Invest in Girls’ Rights: Our Leadership, Our Well-being”.

STAR Education conducted a short yet empowering activity in line with the theme. In the activity, the students were asked to write a short positive/empowering/motivational note and post it on a designation Notice Board. The idea is to spread positivity and motivate the girl child to dream big and to invest in their aspirations.

Speaking on the occasion, Amrita Thingujam, Managing Director, STAR Education said,”International Day of the Girl Child is a day to honour and celebrate the remarkable potential and resilience of girls worldwide. Every girl, irrespective of her socio-cultural background, inherently possesses the right to pursue her aspirations and gain access to equal opportunities. At STAR Education, we steadfastly adhere to a foundational tenet: to provide equitable education to every child, transcending the constraints of gender, birthplace, parental income, or their parents’ education levels. We ardently believe that every child in Manipur deserves the chance to realise their full potential.”
