The Background

Bihar has one of the highest female infanticide rates and continues to be in lowest league even in overall literacy levels.  The state recorded a 53% literacy rate, amongst women, which is just above that of Rajasthan.  The gender ratio continues to be skewed and the child sex ratios are alarming.

The problem is deep rooted in society that views the birth of a girl child as a liability.  The government’s Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao initiative is an attempt to change mindsets and improve the social fabric.  The wait, for change, is of course getting longer.

The implications are far-fetched.  Low literacy levels increase the Gullibility Index (GI), one of the biggest causes of crimes against women.  Skewed gender ratios, where there are more males, lead to frustration, polyandry and other social problems.

Low literacy levels, lack of employment opportunities, frustration, gullibility, poor sociological development lead to crimes such as kidnapping, trafficking, flesh trade and exploitation.

Drops and Drops Make an Ocean
Tens of thousands of women and children are becoming victims of this fast-growing illegal, criminal trade.  The state is source, transit and destination for all such inhuman activities.

Although, one individual cannot do much and helping one victim may not be sufficient, everyone must start somewhere.

Sid wants to start by helping at least 1 (one) survivor by skilling her and making her employable in the mainstream industry.  As an individual, it seems difficult, but a CROWDFUNDED or rather PROUDFUNDED contribution can help make a difference to 1 life.  

His previous crowd funding campaign, on Milaap, was for a small girl child in SOS Children’s Village, Begusarai, Bihar. The money was a contribution towards her school education.

Sid's Recent Initiatives

(A) A Novella titled, “IT’S OFFICIAL STUPID”, focusing on Human Gullibility (Root cause of Trafficking & Workplace Sexual Harassment)

(B) Panel Discussion on Human Trafficking & Work Place Exploitation

(C) Bihar ki Beti-Part I-Education for the Girl Child

(D) Project Smile: Initiative for underprivileged kids at KFC, Guwahati Assam

Donning multiple hats is typical of Sid.  In 2017, he crowdfunded the Bihar ki Beti campaign, on Milaap, in support of education for the girl child.  His “Project Smile” event for underprivileged kids, at KFC, was widely covered on electronic media in 2017.

He is also a Profile Coach and has helped hundreds of corporate executives and international education aspirants in introspecting and writing world class profiles.

The funds would be transferred to The Freedom Project, India.
