One of the father said that her daughter, in her childhood was assigned difficult tasks at home. She had fetch water, graze the cow and clean the house. Her future was dark but now I saw my daughter studying at home and school. I am very happy to see smile on the face of my daughter. Her eyes glitters and I saw a bright future in those eyes. Thank you all of you for helping my daughter to become a strong girl.
