FUNDRAISING APPEAL
‘Unique Home’ for girls (Punjab)

New life on this earth requires love to nurture it. It needs support to survive in this world with the belief that he or she is loved and cared for. The story, however, is rapidly changing for the girl child, especially in the so-called “progressive” Punjabi society, which has fast turned the tools of repression towards its own daughters making them unsafe even in their mother’s womb.

Female genocide in Punjab is amongst the highest anywhere in the world. This is the same Punjab, the homeland of Sikhs of whom their founder Guru Nanak’s first follower and believer was Bibi Nanaki, his sister. Guru Nanak himself stated;

From woman, man is born;
within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.
Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.
When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.
So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.
From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.
– Guru Nanak, Raag Aasaa Mehal 1, Page 473
The Bhai Ghanayya Ji Charitable Trust was established on May 17th 1993 running as ‘Unique Home’ which looks after unwanted, unclaimed or orphan children whom society shuns. The baby girls are found by road sides, dumped by running water, or even left during the night in the baby cradle outside the home.

Unique Home currently looks after 52 females, mostly children.
To raise these children as enlightened and self respecting citizens and restore them their due place in society is a very hard task that requires a mass, social effort. We appeal to all kind hearted people to come forward with any possible means of donating to this worthy cause.

We will be flying out to India on 06-Feb-09,
