We are different but equal

An estimated 1,400 girls are not born annually in the country due to the traditional and deeply entrenched preference for baby boys and the higher status that males traditionally enjoy in the Armenian society.

By 2060, almost 93,000 girls will not be born in Armenia if the tendency of sex-selective abortions or sex selection until childbirth remains unchanged.

World Vision's “Caring for Equality” project changes attitudes and prevents behavior that is harmful to women and girls. It seeks an environment where girls and boys are born and valued equally.
