When our team visited India in February, we had the delightful pleasure of meeting Pranitha. After sitting with her and hearing her story, we felt she embodied the hope and future of our work in India. Her story is a beautiful story of how a Dalit child goes from next to zero options in a life of poverty to becoming a Doctor of Pharmacy… simply because someone cared enough to fund her education.
We could tell you Pranitha’s story. We could tell you how thankful she is for the education she received. But Pranitha herself is much better at sharing her own story and thoughts. And we are truly grateful to have been able to hear from her.
Pranitha’s story is not an anomaly. There are 10,000 other stories out there…
The global Dalit Freedom Network has been challenged to free 5,000 children in 2015. 5,000! If we do it, every dollar we raise will be matched by a donor once the funds reach India. This means 10,000 children will have the opportunity to get the education they need to change their future! Fresh Start is a significant opportunity for us to start strong.
