Frequently asked questions

In India, girls are not often seen as valuable, and in many families, they are “invisible,” unwanted, neglected. We work to increase the perceived value of girls in Indian culture so they are no longer invisible.

You can contact us here or reach us via email at info@invisiblegirlproject.org. Our mailing address is: Invisible Girl Project, 4804 Page Creek Ln, Durham, NC 27703.

At this time, we have no employment needs overseas.

Because of the sensitive nature of the girls’ situations, we can’t introduce visitors to them. Our girls, as survivors of gendercide, may have been traumatized in the past. We work hard to protect them and their path of restoration. The staff in place in India is highly trained and fully committed to walking with the girls over years. Therefore, our partners generally do not allow visitors.

We are an international humanitarian organization serving all people regardless of religious beliefs. We believe partnerships across religious, political, social, and cultural boundaries are vital in working towards the abolition of gendercide in India. Though our co-founders are inspired by their faith, a system of faith is not required in our work, and we value the diverse perspectives of our staff and supporters.


Individuals primarily fund our work. We also seek funding from foundations, grants, and various communities.

We (and our partners) believe that we cannot end female gendercide without the support and cooperation of the Indian government in combatting this issue, and are happy to provide assistance in the form of training, strategic planning, or advocacy.

We regularly get requests to accept new Indian partners, although our capacity precludes us from helping them all. Please contact info@invisiblegirlproject.org if your organization is in need of assistance.

We may be looking for an intern to help in our US headquarters and are always eager for volunteer help, particularly for raising awareness and fundraising. Please contact info@invisiblegirlproject.org


Our staff members are generally available for media interviews. Due to high demand, we are less able to provide interviews for other purposes, such as student research projects. Please send your request to info@invisiblegirlproject.org or request a speaker here.
