HIMANI KALRA

Founder - Save the Girl Child

"Save the Girl Child" and the social media platform "Every Girl Matters" was founded by high school student Himani in 2018. As the second female child in an Indian family, she understands the patriarchal mindset that exists in Asian communities, and while working in the slums of Delhi with her grandmother every summer, she saw the obstacles faced by poor girls in accessing education and holding them back from equal opportunity and future progress. 

 

When an infant girl was found discarded in the woods of a Georgia suburb near her home, and knowing that her own parents had been pressured for a sex-selective abortion when a genetic test to check for a fetal malformation revealed her gender was female, Himani became determined to work for change. She is a social advocate against female gendercide and is working to empower girls through literacy initiatives in the Clarkston refugee area of Georgia, USA, and the Bhalswa Slum District in Delhi, India.

Through a social media campaign, public presentations, distribution of gendercide brochures, STEAM curriculum teaching for refugee girls, funding five rural village schools, donation of books and educational supplies, and an expanding network of youth volunteers and partnerships with NGO's, Save the Girl Child is working for literacy and empowerment of underprivileged girls.
