My Story

Sanjana faced harsh verbal and physical abuse, simply because she is a girl. Sanjana’s parents did not allow her to go to school so they could save their income for their son’s education.

Sanjana worked on farms so she could contribute to the family. Unfortunately, Sanjana’s parents did not believe that girls were worth educating and instead believed that child marriage would be the best way to relieve themselves of the burden of having a daughter. 

Your sponsorship allows Sanjana to go to school and live in a safe home where she is protected from physical abuse, child labor, neglect, 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!
