My Story

Vedhasri grew up being constantly compared to her brother. Vedhasri faced harsh verbal abuse and neglect—simply because she is a girl. Vedhasri’s parents did not allow her to go to school so that they could provide for their son and ensure that he received a good education. 

Rather than going to school, Vedhasri stayed home helping with household chores. Her parents believed that child marriage would be the best way to relieve themselves of the burden of having a daughter. If Vedhasri hadn’t met our social workers, she could have been illegally married as a young teenager.

Your sponsorship allows Vedhasri to go to school and live in a safe home where she is protected from neglect, verbal abuse, and illegal child marriage. She is safe, has access to nutritious food and education, and most importantly, she is being told truth: she is loved, she is valuable, she is worthy!
