As Jhabua is a predominantly Adivasi district, and suffers from high rates of illiteracy and poverty. Almost half of the population lives below the poverty line. The Bhil and Bhilala peoples inhabit the interior of the district. We need to aware girl education among rural girls of the district. Educated rural girls make educated nation and it is high time to strengthen them. He says that development is seen in Jhabua in past 10-15 years. Now it has become a good and transformed town from the earlier 'tribal' Jhabua. There is one government college SCAMV (Shaheed Chandra Shekhar Azad Mahavidyalaya) which imparts post graduate education. Apart from this, Shri Mahesh Chandra Jain did a lot in environmental cause too through promoting plantation. He thinks that now the Jhabua has developed with awareness about cleanliness and education. It has given employment to people residing in nearby villages. The image of Jhabua has changed, it is now no more tribal at all, however the main people of Jhabua 'Adivasi 'girls are also studying in good schools to gain knowledge. He also took many seminars in schools to motivate girls for their own safety by informing them about woman policing, woman safety SOS woman safety helpline and their constitutional rights along with important sections of IPC. According to him the district is highly drought-prone and degraded waste lands form the matrix of Jhabua. The women make lovely ethnic items including bamboo products, dolls, bead-jewellery and other items that have for long decorated the living rooms all over the country. The men have for ages adorned "Teer-Kamthi", the bow and arrow, which has been their symbol of chivalry and self-defense.
