Sarileru Neekevvaru (a Telugu masala film).
Sagar Triveni is forced to compete with her younger brother for her parent’s love. She was neglected from birth—her mother refused to nurse and care for her because of her gender. Sagar Triveni is constantly compared to her brother and verbally abused by her parents. Her father thinks she is a burden, and physically and emotionally abuses her. Her parents pulled her out of school so they could pay for her brother to attend. Sagar Triveni was forced to work to bring in extra income for the family, and she was at-risk of being married off within the next few years. She wants to prove to her parents that she can be just as successful and important as her brother.

After rescue, she was placed in a good school and a safe home where she can thrive. Your sponsorship helps support her everyday needs and her education.
