NAGC organizes ‘Girls Friendship Circle’


Dimapur, April 20: The Nagaland Adolescent Girls Club (NAGC) under the aegis of the Nagaland State Social Welfare Board (NSSWB) organised a “Girls Friendship Circle” programme with the theme “we rise by lifting each other” on April 20 at Mezhur Higher Secondary School, Kohima.
Mission Director SRCW & Secretary NSSWB, Daisy Mezhur said that the Girls’ Friendship Circle was mainly for the girls to come together, develop a bond with each other and to fight for themselves. It is a never-ending circle concerning adolescent girls who are going through a phase of intense physiological and psychological transformation. She urged the students of different schools to make this activity as their priority for their development.
In his message to the students, Rev. Mwchang Jamatia, Pastor of Freedom Church mentioned that God has created every individual with love. What most of the people around the world lacks is acceptance and to love oneself. He said that there is a constant battle in the world today with feminism and there is a misunderstanding in the society of how females are represented. Being a female is a blessing, he further added and whatever people say about “being a girl brings unhappiness to a family” is not true because girls are also loved equally by God. He encouraged the girls to be strong and confident no matter what kind of obstacles will be set forth before them by the society.
NAGC was formed to facilitate adolescent girls to emerge as formidable agents, that each girl may become an “ambassador” of change in attitude and conduct, which will benefit them and the society at large, in numerous positive ways.
The programme was chaired by Asst. State Coordinator SRCW, Juliana Medom.
