My Story

Since her birth, Prasanna Lakshmi was neglected and ignored at home. Preferential toward their son, Prasanna Lakshmi’s parents did not allow her to go to school—and instead, she worked to earn extra income for the family. 

Prasanna Lakshmi was facing physical and verbal abuse, and deeply longed for the opportunity to go to school and find safety from the conditions at home. She was also desperate to be safe from the possibility of illegal child marriage, which is common for young girls like Prasanna Lakshmi. 

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