My Story

Greeshma is from a very poor family living on wages earned day-to-day. Deciding that education for Greeshma was not worth the expense, her parents decided to stop sending her and her sister to school. They believe that Greeshma knowing how to write her name is enough of an education. 

Instead of attending school, making friends, and furthering her education, Greeshma stays home and does chores around the house at the insistence of her parents. Given her age, sometimes Greeshma’s neighbors step in to help her complete her chores. 

Greeshma’s dream is to be a teacher one day! Your sponsorship allows Greeshma to go back to school and live in a safe home where she is protected from child marriage. She is safe, has access to education, and most importantly, she is being told truth: she is loved, she is valuable, she is worthy.
