Gender Equality

Chettinad Vidya Mandir, Tamil Nadu
County India Year 2016

In 2016, students at Chettinad Vidya Mandir, Tamil Nadu, wanted to break gender specific traditions, so they started with their school. They reversed several practices, for eg. boys started taking the morning prayers for the first time. They raised funds for education of some girls, spread awareness through street plays, and contacted the Rotary Club for equal health services for all.
