Welcome To Save Girl Child
Welcome to the world of the girl child, promising yet gloomy, hopeful, yet in despair. The hand that rocks the cradle, the procreator, the mother of tomorrow; a woman shapes the destiny of civilization. Such is the tragic irony of fate, that a beautiful creation such as the girl child is today one of the gravest concerns facing humanity, with a volley of summits, conferences and events held for the cause, with topmost world leaders at the helm.
INDIA and the GIRL CHILD
Traditions and rituals outline the existence of the Indian girl child. Amidst uproars of gender equality and law enforcement, female infants are still found dumped in trash, by the dozens, while unborn fetuses continue to be sniffed in the womb. Wrought with discrimination and prejudiced by rituals, our society has dealt the girl child a rough hand, starting even before birth, till the dark of life.
At www.savegirlchild.org, we show you the world from the eyes of a girl child, bright but unprivileged, twinkle in the eye, but remorse in the spirit; the Indian girl child, a picture of dismay.
Save Girl Child is a social endeavor under the auspices of The Organization for Eradication of Illiteracy and Poverty www.educatenow.org

From the womb to grave
239,000 girls in India face the ire of horrific gender discrimination every year, losing their precious lives to the deep-rooted patriarchal, societal ways…
There is something indeed very eerie about traditions and rituals, especially when it comes to the evils that ail the human mind. The Indian society has long suffered the malice of an obsession with the male child. Such has been the fanaticism, that even the most literate and intelligent minds have also defied the basic logic’s of science in their battle for the ‘most coveted male child’. From such incomprehensible and despicable mindsets, emanate the horrific practices of female infanticide, female infanticide and the vastly prevalent girl child abuse, which ironically defies all confines of social, economic and even intellectual status.
As per statistics that reveal a very gloomy and dismal picture of a country that otherwise was always revered and looked up globally, the Indian girl child emerges as the most neglected and abused segment of the society.
