Dimapur, July 6 (EMN): A programme to educate children on ‘good touch’ and ‘bad touch,’ according to updates, was conducted for girls of the age group 4-12 years, coinciding with the Girl Child Week. The programme was conducted by the Mahila Shakti Kendra and the district task force of the girls’ education scheme Beti Bachao Beti Padhao on July 5 in Longleng.
The aim of the program was to make them understand between right and wrong contact, a press release from the government’s department of Information and Public Relations on Saturday stated.

During the programme, district coordinator Tutinungla Phom gave a brief introduction to the Girl Child Week.
An organising official, Phungla Phom, spoke about the importance of the rights of the girl child, and urged them to become women with dignity. She gave brief explanations between ‘good touch’ and ‘bad touch,’ the IPR reported.

‘In order to make them understand better, a chart was displayed to the children. They were taught to scream and shout for help and to learn to say no in any uncomfortable situations,’ the IPR stated.
