Girls groups in schools by Tharuni -a great change

There are thousands of Balika Sanghas ( Girls Groups), in the government schools already existing in the four mandals where Tharuni is working for the last 12 years in the Warangal District. They are actively involving themselves not only in their personal problems but also in the community activities, meeting every fortnight.
Really it is a great change Tharuni brought in the lives of the adoloscent girls. The Balika sangham at Viswanathapuram village in Geesukonda Mandal is one of the examples where the girls installed placards to protect and save the people from committing suicides and also against polluting the Water tank in the village. similarly the Balika sangham in Vanchanagiri village in the same Mandal assembled as a parliament, identified the problems in the village, made a representation to the Sarpanch of the village to solve them immediately. In another village Manugonda, Ravali, studying 9th class, did not agree to work in the cotton fields when her mother asked her to do so as she prefers to go to school.She erected the placard against child labour in the middle of the village.Tharuni congratulates the Balika sanghas for their concern for the development of their villages.
