Girls’ education should be centre of women empowerment: Vice President

PIB
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has said girls’ education should be the centre of women empowerment and stressed the need to empower students, especially girls by providing skills, apart from academic excellence to compete in the global job market. 

Addressing the 13th convocation of Jamia Hamdard University in New Delhi on Tuesday, Mr Naidu said education should not be confined to getting just degrees. 

The Vice President added that education is not just for employment, it must empower the individual and help in economic upliftment. 

Mr. Naidu also asked universities, institutions and public places to use solar energy and promote rain water harvesting methods. 

He said educational institutions must encourage students to develop affinity towards environment protection and teach them to live with nature.

The Vice President appreciated the efforts of Jamia Hamdard Management and faculty for having almost 50 per cent ennoblement of female students in its Hamdard programs and said that educating girls of all sections of society is key factor in overall development of the nation.
