New Delhi: The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced a $250,000 grant for the "Delhi Safe City - Free of Violence against Women and Girls", to be implemented in partnership with Indian civil society organizations.

The grant will be channelised through to UN Women as part of the Global Safe Cities Initiative, a statement said.

The U.S. Ambassador to India Nancy J. Powell said, "The United States recognises gender-based violence as a debilitating factor impeding a woman's active participation in any economy in the world and her ability to access resources and services.

"We are pleased to partner with UN Women to help promote safe cities and reduce gender-based violence, which plagues every country in the world," she added.

1: Agenda of these International Orgs:

1. Pick up one or two rape cases and advertise them using media as much as possible.
2. International organizations swiftly joins the chorus and blame it on Indian system.
3. Sponsor money in the name of protecting woman.
4. Brainwash the victims (easy target) to hate their own country and culture. (If possible convert them)

If the government has any shame left, they should immediately refuse to take the grant. If they take the grant, they are accepting their ineffectiveness to govern.

Tail piece: When Shatrughan Sinha was minister of Health and Family welfare (NDA), he out rightly rejected the grant offer for AIDS control from Bill Gates Foundation.

2: What a joke... 10 cents per woman in Delhi! The whole thing serves again only to smear India!

They should better spend it on the rapes in their own country: I read that there is a rape every 15 sec. in the USA!
