Spare a Minute and Vote for a Worthy Cause

Of all the things wrong with the world today, nothing makes me feel worse than the status and treatment accorded to the girl child in this country of ours. The falling gender ratio is a sorry testament to the fate of millions of children, born and unborn, who had the misfortune of belonging to the wrong gender and paid for it by being killed or abandoned.

Some of us are lucky enough to have the opportunity and means to make a personal difference to a cause that we believe in. For the rest of us, the best we can do is to provide our support to those who are dedicating their lives to doing this.

Arti Home For Girls is an orphanage for abandoned girls children based out of Kadappa, Andhra Pradesh. Its founder Sandhya, has been working with abandoned girl children and women forced to abort their unborn girl children for the past 20 years. She has contributed in many levels and has made a difference in the lives of more than 1000 girl children.

Arti Home is participating in the IMPACT CONTEST. Winning this contest will give many unborn children a chance of survival, women a possibility to stand up for their girl children, educational and vocational training for the abandoned girls.
Please vote and show your support.
