We’ve all heard about India’s girl crisis. According to the UNICEF, India is the worst place to be born a girl. Commit2Change’s mission to provide opportunity and hope for girls who otherwise wouldn’t stand a fighting chance against illness, medical neglect, malnourishment, human trafficking and sexual violence. Commit2Change creates systematic and cultural change by focusing on educating abandoned and impoverished girls in India with programming to support the girl beyond her youth. We work with carefully selected local partners who rescue and rehabilitate at-risk girls and invest in initiatives to give them a chance.
