Child Spotlight: Boomika

“In a land where being born a girl is a bad thing, I gave birth to 5 girls. I was humiliated & tortured because I was unable to have a boy.

I used to constantly worry about how I was going to bring up my girls. I could in no way dream of sending my kids to school.

I’m so very thankful…three of my girls have access to an education.”

— Boomika’s Mom (Boomika in photo in front of her home)

Thank You

A heartfelt THANK YOU to our donor family for your continued support of our mission to provide education and love to marginalized communities.

Your donations give us the ability to prevent injustices like child labor and human trafficking through the power of education.

They also provide opportunities for oppressed young women to learn how to sew so they can support their families.

I slept & I dreamed that life is all joy.
I woke up & I saw that life is all service.
I served & I saw that service is joy.
