July 25 will mark the celebration of Kanyashree Utsav. The day will witness representatives from all corners of the state coming together to congratulate accomplished Kanyashrees, who will be felicitated by the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee herself. Students who have benefited from the Kanyashree Scheme from every district will participate in the celebratory event of this flagship scheme. The Kanyashree Scheme is not only Ms Banerjee's most ambitious project, but it is also the pride of the state. It has so far brought 40 lakh girls under its umbrella. The scheme aims at effectively empowering girls through far-sighted, holistic and all-round development, stressing on ending early marriage and opening up options for young women. It even includes development in areas such as sports. The success of the scheme has won it accolades both nationally and internationally. This includes the top prize at the United Nations Public Service Award 2017 and the Digital Empowerment Foundation-bestowed Manthan Award for Digital Inclusion and Development, and recognition at the UNICEF and DFID-organised Girl Summit in 2014. The scheme proved to be the best in the Public Service category at the UN forum from among 552 schemes across 63 countries.UNI SJC KK
