Easy Way to Help Girls In India

All babies –male and female– should be brought into the world with love and equal opportunity. Unfortunately that’s not always the case.

In some parts of India, having a boy is revered as the greatest gift on earth, while having a girl is considered quite the opposite. Boys are educated, fed, clothed, and honored. Their sisters are neglected, pulled out of school to work at home, and often sold into child marriages or sexual slavery.

The Girl Store is a non-profit organization that buys back the lives of†young Indian girls. It’s the first e-commerce site where users can buy†school supplies (all under 20 dollars) and prevent a girl from being sold into a life of abuse and manipulation; a life that isn’t hers. Just†$65 is enough money to keep a girl in grade 1Ė7 fully supplied for an entire year.

Their website highlights stories of dozens of girls who have benefited from their efforts–like the plight of Farheen Begum, “a delightful young child.” The dire financial situation of Farheen’s family forces her to sacrifice her studies to do household chores. There’s also ten-year-old Asra Begum whose father passed away when she was just three. Despite her single mother’s financial struggles, Asra earns excellent grades and wants to become a computer engineer.

Support girls like Farheen and Asra by buying pencils, math sets, lunch boxes, and uniforms.†Every purchase comes with a tutor to close gaps in the girl’s education due to being kept out of the classroom for family obligations.

Visit†The Girl Store, purchase supplies, and†buy a girl her life back.

Sorry but the only way to help these young girls and women is to ship them outta that hell hole. And how do we do that??? I feel for all these women..such a life of suffering they endure their entire lives.
