Director General of School Education Vijay Kiran Anand said the main objective of the Aarohini programme, which will be implemented in three phases, is gender sensitisation.
In the first phase, which will start on February 1, teachers will be trained.
Two teachers of every Kasturba Gandhi Residential Girls' School will receive the training, who will then educate the students of their respective schools, the statement said.
Along with the teachers, the institution will also groom the girls through debates and other activities, it added.
