My Story

Jayaswini’s father was known for his male-dominated nature and only wanted sons in his family. To his great disappointment, his wife had given birth to 4 daughters. Jayaswini’s father was so angry at his wife for giving birth to four girls that he often took it out on her with violence. He also neglected the four girls severely—even forcing Jayaswini to be responsible for all of the household work as a young girl. Instead of going to school, Jayaswini’s father wanted the four girls to become bonded laborers so they could provide for the family.

Their mother, desperate to help her daughters, reached out to our social workers and informed them of her situation. After learning about Jayaswini’s situation, our social workers were able to confront her father for his negligence of his wife and children and intervene on their behalf. Your sponsorship ensures Jayaswini is enrolled in school and receiving a good education rather than becoming a bonded laborer. It also provides her with ongoing support and counseling from our social workers who are teaching her the value and worth of being a girl.
