What We Do

Gendercide in India must end. Invisible Girl Project is committed to shedding light on this atrocity, combatting it, and caring for its survivors.

Invisible Girl Project (IGP) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization based out of the U.S. that 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, and assists Indian organizations in the rescue of and care for Indian girls.

Understand the Issue

Rescue

Rescue

IGP has partnered with indigenous organizations that rescue baby girls from infanticide and care for little girls who are abandoned and vulnerable to trafficking. IGP’s partners provide care for these girls, help meet their needs, educate them, and help transform their lives. IGP’s partners in India are responsible for the care and support for over 560 girls.

Justice

IGP’s partners also pursue justice for little girls whose lives have been taken. Specifically, one partner monitors village pregnancies which may be susceptible to feticide or infanticide. Our partner’s social workers help care for the pregnant mothers and educate them on the value of girls. If, however, our partner finds that a baby girl’s life has been taken, our partner pursues justice for the baby girl in the local court system. IGP is the only US-based organization that is pursuing justice in such a manner for little girls whose lives are lost.

Awareness

Awareness

IGP raises global awareness to combat gendercide in India. Representatives of IGP travel around the US, speaking about gendercide in India, and globally promote the mission using social media. In 2012, the filmmakers of It’s a Girl (a documentary that details gendercide issues in India and China) chose IGP to be one of its four world-wide, grassroots partners. At showings of the film around the globe, people are able to learn about IGP’s work and how they could get involved in combating gendercide.

Empowerment

IGP and its partners teach girls and families that girls are as valuable as boys, providing an education to all rescued girls and local families, and teaching that girls’ rights are human rights. IGP further ensures that each of its rescued girls receives a quality education or training in a trade, so that she may be empowered to provide for herself and her own family in her future.
