My Story

Ever since Harshini Bhavani’s younger brother was born, she has not received proper care and attention from her parents, who favor her brother for being a boy. In order to provide the best education for their son, Harshini Bhavani’s parents have kept her home from school to save their money for his tuition, and are sending Harshini Bhavani to work on a farm for additional income. 

Harshini Bhavani frequently endures physical abuse, and her mother has told her that she is bad luck to the family. As a result of the abuse and neglect, Harshini Bhavani grew shyer, staying quiet to protect herself. 

Your sponsorship allows Harshini Bhavani to go back to school, which she is very excited about, and live in a safe home where she is protected from child marriage and physical abuse. She is safe, and most importantly, she is being told truth: she is loved, she is valuable, she is worthy.
