Mon: MSK Mon and district administration Mon organised a Beti Bachao Beti Padhao (BBBP) awareness programme for adolescent girls on March 26 at town council hall, Mon. 
According to DIPR report, SDO (C) Mon, Ilika Zhimomi stated that the programme was targeted specifically at girl students of Class VIII since they were at a crucial transitional phase.
She asserted that the aim of the programme was to create awareness among adolescent girls on topics which they may not receive at home or in the school.
Although the topics may not be part of the school curriculum, she encouraged the teachers to have similar sessions in the classes. 
Speaking on reproductive health for adolescent girls, MO Tang PHC, Dr. Khumrila Sangtam highlighted on the physical changes that an adolescent underwent during the transition from childhood to adulthood.
She also talked about the process of menstruation and ways to maintain personal hygiene during menstruation. She further highlighted the abnormalities during menstruation which might require professional help. 
MSK district coordinator, Neijoi Konyak spoke about “good touch & bad touch” where she explained the difference between a touch of care and affection and a touch with bad intentions.
She spoke about molestation and urged upon students not to be scared to voice out and speak up against such behaviour.
She also stated that remaining silent to such behaviours would only encourage the perpetrator to continue further. 
Coordinator Childline Mon, Eunice Thalih shared about Childline 1098 which assisted and rescued children in distress through a 24/7 toll free 1098.
She stated that Childline teams on receiving a distress call arrive at the destination within 60 minutes and reach out to children from 0-18 years of age and in extreme emergency cases up to 25 years of age.
