This has been possible due to your support and encouragement.
Shravani's elder sister was a child bride and she too was being forced to follow suit by dropping out of school. Along with CRY America-supported project Shramika Vikasa Kendram and her elder sister, Shravani convinced her family to let her continue with her education. She became the Vice President of the children's collective in her village. Today, she works towards spreading awareness about children's right to education and the ill-effects of child marriage.
