WHO WE ARE

Vanishing Girls is a campaign initiated by ADF India to raise awareness against the practice of sex-selective abortions and to advocate for effective implementation of the Pre Conception Pre Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex Selection) Act, 1994.

OUR MISSION

The objective of the Vanishing Girls Campaign is to raise awareness against the practice of sex-selective abortion and advocate for the effective implementation of the PCPNDT Act, 1994. Our aim is to create a society where there is no gender bias between a girl and a boy. This can happen through the law and by changing the mindset of the society.

“ We need to adopt a model of LIFE for all girls – Love, Inheritance, Freedom and Equality. The girls in our families and those yet unborn, need advocates who will love them, ensure that they have equal rights to family property as their brothers, their freedoms are protected and promoted and that they are treated with equal dignity and respect.”
