The Government of India envisages Gender Champions to be identified in all schools and colleges across the country. They can be both boys and girls enrolled in educational institutions. This is a joint initiative of Ministry of Women and Child Development and Ministry of Human Resource Development.
Gender Champions are envisaged as responsible leaders who will facilitate an enabling environment within their schools/ colleges/ academic institutions where girls are treated with respect and dignity. They will strengthen the potential of young girls and boys to advocate for gender equality and monitor progress towards gender justice.
