In many parts of India, the birth of a girl child is not welcomed. Right from her arrival she faces discrimination, humiliation, and oppression at every stage of life. When it comes to healthcare, education and growth opportunities, she is neglected because of her gender. 56% adolescent girls (15-19 years) in India are anaemic - Census-2011 revealed a deficit of 71 million girls as against boys in the 0-6 age group a sizable increase over Census-2001 (6 million) and Census-1991 (4.2 million)


CRY's fight for the girl child include: Education that helps create attitudinal shifts that emphasise the rights of a girl child, Institutionalising gender sensitive processes within various systems such as law and programmes,Encouraging community ownership in preventing violations faced by girls, Demanding a healthy budget allocation for the girl child at state and central level, Building women leaders from the community through sensitisation programmes that help them understand their rights

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact of the project is to break myths and stereotypes around gender in the communities and ensure state accountability to implement various policies , laws, constitutional guarantees and international commitments.
