ActionAid Association is working in Rajasthan since 2001. Since beginging we are running a campaign to stop violence against women. This campaign is able to reflect on different forms of violence faced by women and girls in their life cycle. Since birth girl child is being killed in the womb and deprived of her right to be born as a normal human being. Sex selective abortion is an important factor contributing to the declining sex ratio in the state. To combat this we led a campaign on awareness about PCPNDT(Pre conception and pre natal Diagnostic techniques). The project was with the name of "Chahat hain Jeene ki". This was conducted in Dholpur( 12 gram panchayats), Karoli, Bharatpur, Duasa,Jhalawaar districts of Rajasthan. The selected districts were lowest in sex ratio from past many years in Rajasthan. The project was implemented in different phases, in the initial phase capable people were identified who could advocate for this issue.The second phase focussed on building people's institution so that they can advocate with district administration and policy makers. In the third phase a local CBO with name " Jago Sakhi Sangathan" was formed. In the fourth phase gender legal information cell was extended through the establishment of women support centers in police stations. In Daulpur itself 13223 females and 5157 males have participated in community level meetings. 661 children from Dhaulpur were sensitized on gender justice.
