NSS units observe National Safe Motherhood Day

Kasturba Gandhi (11 April 1869 – 22 February 1944)

The NSS units of Vidya observed the National Safe Motherhood Day on 11 April 2020 by organising an online quiz programme.  The quiz began at 10:00 am in the morning and was concluded by 5:00 pm. As many as  260 volunteers participated in the quiz and 23 of them shared the glory by scoring the maximum number of points.

It was in 2003 that Govt of India decided to observe 11 April, the birth day of Kasturba Gandhi, as the National Safe Motherhood Day.  It may be noted that India is the first country to have a day dedicated to Safe Motherhood.
