How We Work to Remove Barriers of Education – Volume 1, Episode 4: Invisible Girl Project

This month’s episode focuses on a 2018 grant award of $10,000 that helped fund the educational assistance of 250 girls in India. There are 37 million more men than women in India resulting in an imbalance in the population, which has led to young girls being trafficked into brothels and as child brides. With the help of these funds from generous donors, these girls have had the chance to go to school. Tune in to learn more about how this grant award has helped to uplift these girls and increase their chances of a brighter future.

About the Invisible Girl Project

Invisible Girl Project (IGP) seeks to end the atrocity of gendercide in India. IGP raises global awareness concerning the loss of female lives in India, pursues justice for the lives lost, assists Indian organizations in the rescue of and care for Indian girls, and empowers women. Because of female gendercide, there are 37 million more men than women in India. The resulting imbalance in the population has led to young girls being trafficked into brothels and as child brides for men who have no one to marry. IGP has built a holistic model to address gendercide both on a short-term and long-term, systemic level. Through IGP’s RICE (Rescue-Intervention-Care-Empowerment) Program, social workers rescue girls vulnerable to female gendercide, intervene in difficult family situations to help daughters or mothers as needed, care for rescued girls and their mothers, and empower girls and women. Our $10,000 grant will fund educational assistance for 250 girls who will be rescued from female gendercide in India, providing uniforms, books, supplies, and counseling as part of the holistic RICE program.
