Save Girl Child Campaign




She is strong, she is capable, she is a woman!” These words aptly describe the 30-odd photographs - poignant and powerful, exhibiting the various facets of Indian women, particularly the downtrodden.
The photographs capture the various moods and lives of women accomplishing different tasks and roles. 

Women working merrily in the fields, a little girl carrying her infant brother, three women representing different generations chatting away on a charpoy, a woman decked up in her traditional jewellery balancing three vessels — are just a few images on display at the Reva showroom on Lavelle Road.

Each framed image carries a child’s picture at the bottom in an inset, depicting its name, age, along with a ‘thank you’ note. &





The 30 pictures are of inmates of an orphanage run by the Space for Children in Education, Art and Development (SCEAD) Foundation, a Bangalore-based NGO. 

“The idea is to highlight that anyone can fund or support these children’s education and adopt them,” said Siju Thomas Daniel, founder of SCEAD.
 

As a college student, Siju, founded SCEAD in 1998, which worked for the cause of underprivileged children, by spreading the message of “Save the Girl Child,” through theatre, music, dance and other activities, to create awareness among the people, particularly those living in villages on the importance of girl child and education.

SCEAD now plans to take the exhibition across Bangalore’s hospitals to spread the message against female foeticide, infanticide and the importance of educating children.

The photographs have been clicked by Sanyukta Gupta who has been associated with SCEAD for the last six years. She was inspired by women in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, etc.
 

The idea behind the photographs is to show women are not just mothers, or homemakers, but also capable of carving their own niches in different fields, beyond the four walls of their houses, Siju said.
