HISTORY

The history of RUTH FOUNDATION began in 2017 when RUTH SHAFREEN was born in 2014. Her birthday gave me the vision to change the life of girl children in underprivileged RURAL, URBAN AND TRIBAL communities in India. Since it is inception in 2017, RUTH FOUNDATION’S has established a Primary Level English School, a Good Samaritan Shelter for Patients and a Rehabilitation center.

When I was a MSW Student in Bangalore University, I heard about the Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Translation: Save the daughter, Educate the daughter) campaign by the Government of India that aims to generate awareness and improve the efficiency of welfare services intended for girls in India.

Beti Bachao Beti Padhao is a government social scheme launched by the Prime Ministeron 22nd of January in 2015 in order to address the gender imbalance and discrimination against girl child in the Indian society.
