Campaign Against Sex-Selective Abortion

Jagori Rural has been carrying out a campaign against sex selective abortion in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, starting in September 2014. So far, due to the hard work of Jagori's team, 20 panchayats have passed a resolution to make sure that no one in their panchayat gets a sex-selective abortion. In addition, they have vowed to instruct Anganwadi workers to monitor all the pregnant women who registered at their Anganwadi centers. Adolescent girls were also engaged and participated in a cricket match, a rally, and a short marathon in Dharamsala. Two more rallies were conducted in the area, one during the kishore- kishori utsav and another with the Boys Sanskrit College.
