Survival or development at risk
Sweeping the house.
To be a teacher.
Chhota Bheem (an animated TV show on Netflix).
Greeshika lives in an environment that encourages the disregard for and abuse of women. Her father was severely disappointed about never having a son, and chose to take it out on his daughters and wife. Greeshika's home is filled with tension and strife as a result of the verbal and physical abuse the father pours out on his family.
Greeshika's older sister has been forced into illegal child labor and her father wants to marry her off illegally when she turns 14. Thankfully, her mother approached our local team when all her efforts to stop the cycle of abuse were exhausted. Our social workers have since met with the family and devised plans to begin the process of healing.
Your sponsorship will help to stop the cycle of discrimination and allow Greeshika to receive the education that she deserves. Most of all she will be taught that she is valuable, loved and that her life has immeasurable worth.
