Piya is a bright young girl with lots of enthusiasm. She is also a wonderful dancer. Recently at an inter school competition for devotional dance presided by Laxminarayan Mahayagya at the Vrindavan's Kumbha Mela site Piya won the first prize.

Piya is studing in the 6th grade of Sandipani Muni School. She is an honest girl with a civilized behaviour. Although Piya is average in her academics, she is a really good dancer. She is learning folk dance at the school and does amazing performances on stage. Piya comes from a family of 6. She has a brother and two sisters and live in a small rented room in Vrindavan. Her father works hard as a rickshaw puller in Sandipani school, while her mother works in local houses as house maid.

As the year is ending like many other adolescent girls from a normal background, Piya also hopes to have something special, you can make it happen for her and many more girls and guess what? it takes just a fiver!, Yes! We are gearing up for New Year Gift Festival. One gift pack its US$5 and you can donate as many as you like.
