Surabhi’s secret wish gets fulfilled
"Surabhi (name changed) lives in a Childcare Institution (CCI) in a village in Maharashtra. She is 14 years old. Her parents are farmers and have an unstable income. As they find it hard to provide for her, she lives in the Childcare Institution.
The institution has enrolled Surabhi in school. This makes Surabhi the first generation in her family who is able to get an education.
The CCI fulfills her basic needs. However, Surabhi had little wishes that any normal young child has.
Her little wishes were a new pair of clothes for a festival and a pair of shoes. But, with the limited support that the CCI had, these had to remain unfulfilled.
CSA then decided to fulfill the wishes of the children in the CCI. Surabhi received a pair of denim jeans and tee shirts. Surabhi was overjoyed at this gift. She then confessed to the caretakers that she secretly dreamt of wearing western outfits. She had never spoken to anyone about this as it seemed like a far-fetched dream that would never come true.
The new clothes were sheer joy and surprise on the innocent faces of the children.
She was thrilled, and her confidence grew with a small gift like new clothes.
Like Surabhi, many other children at rural CCIs are eagerly waiting to receive their first sets of new clothes and footwear. These will go a long way in building their self-esteem and confidence!
