Summary

India represents one of the most adverse sex ratios (983 females:1000 males). This reflects undesirable reversal of the norms of nature also leading to further inequalities in health, education, etc

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In India, the arrival of a baby girl calls for mourning rather than celebration. Abandoning them at birth or marrying them off as children is a common practice. Looked upon as huge economic burdens, it is hardly surprising that many Indian families don't see the point in investing in their education.Often the girl child does not have opportunities like school education, health advisory,etc dealing instead with more complex factors like early marriage, dowry, young motherhood, infanticide, etc

How will this project solve this problem?

Successful education of the girl child has been repeatedly acknowledged as an effective mechanism to break this inter generational cycle of poverty, myths, social norms and social evils.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through this project we seek to provide girls with opportunity to study and grow to achieve independence in thought and action from lifelong abuse and exploitation. this will enable changing of attitudes and breaking of gender base biases.
