Fr Sudhakar, in his message encouraged the girls to have a positive attitude and a positive mindset. He explained it with an anecdote on the movement of legs. Every time we take a step the position of the legs changes, so too our life. One must march ahead with positive thinking and look towards the future with optimism while always speaking good of everyone.

Fr Thomas Koshy cited an example of a girl who passed out of the home in Vijayawada and her true success story. Therefore, he said ''it is our obligation and need of the hour to build their life and give them utmost respect''.  

Mrs Syamala Devi highlighted the importance of the ''Girl Child Day''. She said that there is an inequality in the family, and all have to work towards equality by treating everyone as equals.

Fr Thathireddy Vijaya Bhaskar began with a quote from Michelle Obama, wife of the former President, Barack Obama USA. She said underlining the importance of women in nation-building and development ''Any country that gives importance to women grows stronger, fosters in prosperity and turns out to be happier''. Similarly, studies have proven that men spend only 60% of their income for the family and development of the Society but women devote 95%. When a woman is educated, the entire family is educated. He said, ''You must educate yourself well for your future''. He also appreciated work carried out at DBPSS.

Girls performed cultural dances, singing and plays based on theme of the day. Vote of thanks was proposed by Sr Princy. The chief guest and the guests of honour distributed Food Kits for 68 migrant families who work around the centre.

The International Girl Child Day 2020 was concluded with sumptuous food to everyone. This occasion was also used to felcitate Fr Thaithireddy, the Provincial on his birthday.
