Gorintaku (a Telugu drama).
After Taneswari’s mother died suddenly from an illness, she lived alone with her father who severely neglected her for being a girl. He made Taneswari do all of the household work on top of working in fields to earn money for her brother’s education instead of her own. Her father would make her, even as a young girl, support the rest of the family to alleviate himself of the burden he felt that she was. One of the older women working in the field with Taneswari became concerned for her wellbeing and reached out to our social workers. After learning about her situation, our social workers were able to confront her father for his negligence and intervene on Taneswari’s behalf.
Your sponsorship ensures Taneswari is enrolled in school and receiving an education rather than becoming a child laborer. It also provides Taneswari with ongoing support and counseling from our social workers who are teaching her the value of being a girl!
