Jaipur: Feb 28, 2011
A “Dignity of Girl Child Foundation” was launched in the presence of two State Ministers in Jaipur with a call for affirmative action for girls, restoration of their value in the society, complete ban on sex determination tests and female foeticide and renewed efforts to check the declining sex ratio in Rajasthan. A conglomerate of three non-government organisations – Urmul, Swach and Vihaan – joined hands for the unique initiative with the support of Awake Foundation and Gyanodaya Trust. The three NGOs have been working for the past five to six years in the far-flung areas of five districts – Jaisalmer, Sriganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jhunjhunu and Alwar – to meet the challenge of sharp fall in the number of women in the population.
