My Story

Keerthi was born to a very poor family—both of her parents worked daily on a farm for low wages. Her father believed that having a son would increase his status in society. Subsequently, after Keerthi was born, he began to severely neglect her because she is a girl. Keerthi would frequently be scolded for no reason and left without proper care. Her mother desired to care for her but was unable to do so sufficiently without the support of her husband. 

Our social workers learned about Keerthi, confronted her father regarding his negligence, and were ultimately able to intervene on her behalf. Your sponsorship ensures Keerthi is receiving proper care and nutrition for her development, as well as a safe environment to grow. More than that, she will learn she is loved and valued as a girl.
