Feedback Updates

Extract from a good feedback document sent with a clear photograph
Brief Description:
Even after 60 years of independence, women in India can hardly be called independent. Gender discrimination for the female begins at conception and continues to the end of her life. This is particularly true of the financially under privileged. By empowering poor girls through education we hope that at least some of them will be able to break out of this vicious bondage. Karnataka provides free education till class 7. For the past few years we have been helping girls to continue schooling, who otherwise would have had to drop out of school and may be, end up as maids in other peoples’ homes.
Personal story:
Sushmita was a student of our adopted government school. As she is a fairly good student (her marks are in the sixties) we helped her financially to get admission in a private school. Her father works in a farm. Mother supplements their income by doing some tailoring. The family income is around INR 3500 (less than US$ 80) per month and the family consists of four members.
