Girl. Stop. Full Stop.

She was the youngest of five girls.
Her parents had had enough.
They named her Bhateri. Enough.
Imagine living every day, knowing you’re not wanted.
Being teased at school, by others who know too.
Your sense of who you are, your dreams,
being shaped by this knowledge.
That though your loved ones call you Bhateri, or Enough,
nothing you can do or be, will ever be good enough.

Millions of girls like Bhateri suffer discrimination from the moment of birth,

just because they are girls. Denied birth, an education, a childhood,

dreams, an identity.

But you can change this.

Say ENOUGH to gender-based discrimination.

When you make a donation to Breakthrough, you become part of Team Change. Your donation helps us talk to boys and girls in school about gender roles, and find new ways of interacting with one another with respect and empathy.

Your donation creates a tiny piece of change. An uncle fights for his newborn niece to be called Khushboo (fragrance) and not Bhateri. That simple act of naming sets into motion a ripple of possibilities for her, starting with how she perceives herself. A father announces the birth of his baby girl with sweets. She goes to school. She stands up for her siblings. She dreams of being a doctor. Do you see?

With just this choice you’ve made, to be part of Team Change, you
give her the confidence that she is enough

From a world of compromise, to a world of promise.
