Second Daughters

£5,260 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 6 months
A percentage of all proceeds from our restaurant, Darjeeling Express will go to a charitable cause near and dear to owner Asma Khan's heart.

Largely in traditional India, sons are still preferred over daughters. Second daughters are even less so. Instead of vibrant celebrations complete with fireworks and Indian mithai for welcoming boys, sometimes births of a second girl are mourned. And these innocent girls carry the hurt and disadvantage for the rest of their upbringings.

Asma, of Darjeeling Express, doesn't want these girls to ever feel like a burden to their families. They deserve the same opportunities and celebrations as any other sibling. And so, starting in Kurseong --a small town in the district of Darjeeling-- Darjeeling Express will send celebration packages for the birth of the second daughter and continue to support her through her education.

If you would like to contribute, please donate on this Second Daughter's fundraising page or feel free to drop by the restaurant, located in Kingly Court on Carnaby St.
