According to the UN, over 50 million girls in India are missing: having been aborted, killed, or neglected to death simply because they are female. In some regions, no baby girl has survived in years.
Help us make a difference.
Every day, 7,000 girls are aborted in India simply because they are female.
Sadly, even if they live, many girls in India face a childhood of neglect, in which they aren't fed nearly enough. They aren't immunized or taken to the doctor as their brothers are. And when they die, it is not considered a tragedy.
Just because they are girls.
With nobody to marry, boys are suffering as well. Partially as a result, violent crimes against women are up by 800% in India, and the nation has been declared to be the 4th most dangerous for women and girls in the world.
The Society for the Protection of the Girl Child is working with leaders of all faiths, alongside civil society, governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as volunteers, to help end the deadly practices of gendercide. Together, differences can be made. And girls can be recognized as the precious gifts they are.
