Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of us.

Rabindranath Tagore

A child is the most beautiful creation of God. A girl child is more so because she is the mother of future generations. Save Girl Child Organization is the direct result of two fold vision of Bernard Malik, 1) sanctity of life and 2) race preserving instinct of man. If we continue to kill the unborn female fetuses we are not only committing sin in the eyes of God but also quickening the end of human race. The obsessive inborn hunger of the patriarchal set-up to have a male child in its progeny and social stigma attached to girl child has virtually brought the ethical systems into shambles. There has to be a mindset revolution for this deadly trend to change. With this mission, Bernard Malik has founded the Save Girl Child Organisation, a global social endeavor under the auspices of The Organisation for Eradication of Illiteracy and Poverty.
