How you make change: Stories of Hope
Shirisha was forced to drop-out of school after her mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer, to take care of her and the household chores. When CRY America supported Project Shramik Vikas Kendra (SVK) and community members intervened and spoke to her father, he agreed to send her back to school after much persuasion. However, within a month, Shirisha dropped out again due to the worsening condition of her ailing mother. Sadly, her mother passed away and the entire burden of household work continued to be on her little shoulders.
With continued counseling and support from SVK, Shirisha was re-admitted to the school. She remains passionate about learning and was recently promoted to Class 9. A little help from you will ensure that girls like Shirisha get an education and are empowered to pursue their dreams.
