There are over 60 million missing girls in India. They were either aborted before birth, killed once born, died of neglect just because they were girls, trafficked, or given away in child marriage. This stems from disregarding the value of its women for centuries. The root of this stems from extreme poverty and an age-old practice of dowry that is deeply ingrained in its culture. Rescue Pink works to change this through rescue, prevention, and awareness. (Scroll down on this page to see more about how we do what we do).
RESCUE PINK’S VISION IS TO CREATE AN INDIA WHERE A GIRL’S VALUE IS RESPECTED.
In just a little over 2 years we now have 4 centers in rural areas in different states in India. We have 156 girls in our after-school program and 96 mothers in our pregnancy and lactating program. We treated over 1,450 women and girls in our medical camps last year alone, and reached over 2,500 people in awareness programs. We are also so proud to say that we have launched 114 successful women entrepreneurs! It’s been amazing to see how quickly we are already seeing change.
