Our Response

There are a number of organizations that are already engaged in various initiatives to bring about changes and awareness to the issue. The government has passed laws to address this issue and yet as the latest census figures show the problem is actually getting worse. Awareness and legislation are not proving to be enough. The “Let her live” campaign focuses its efforts on two main areas– revaluing womanhood through awareness, training, and creative programmes, and providing counselling and support for those struggling in abusive situations. We hope that through speaking, counseling and demonstrating the truth of the inherent value of life and the inherent dignity of women, families and individuals will be encouraged to revalue their daughters and contribute in decreasing the practice of dowry, female foeticide and infanticide.
