India´s population is around 1.34 billion and more than 50% are living in poverty. Even if the economy is flourishing in some sectors, most of the people do not receive an adequate and good education, neither sufficient access to health care or water facilities. Women and girls have not the same rights as men, and often they are victims of violence and discrimination. The society of India is multicultural and colourful and so are its difficulties and problems.


ANDHRA PRADESH • Care for Transgender Persons

Transgender people, known as hijras in India, do not fit into any of the common gender concepts of male or female. Their physical sensation often does not correspond to the gender they were assigned at birth.

Discrimination and social exclusion are part of their everyday life. They struggle for acceptance and recognition because they are stigmatised in many public and private spheres of life.
