What a difference your help makes

By Jane Manson | Fundraising


Kahkasha was just 6 years old when she joined this project.  She is from a very poor family: her father is a waiter who earns just £55 ($72) each month. With that he supports his wife Farzana, daughter Kahkasha (now aged 9) and her younger brother.  They live in a single rented room of about 3m x 3m. They are a respectable family who want the best for their daughter.  But Kahkasha struggled in her first years at school. Shreya, who runs the programme, was very concerned as she feels very responsible for ensuring that your donations are properly spent.  So she engaged Anjum, one of the graduates from this programme, to give Kahkasha some extra tuition – and it seems that this has really paid off.  You can see the difference between this year’s and last year’s reports. Her grades have gone from mainly Ds and Cs to As and Bs. Her teachers are very pleased and so are her parents.  

Shreya reports:

“Kahkasha was promoted to class 1 she scores good number her percentage is 64% she did well. Before getting support from GlobalGiving, she was very weak in studies but now Anjum is giving her private tuition regularly now they are getting every benefit from GlobalGiving. Her family said they highly obliged to GlobalGiving. Her father works as a waiter in a restaurant where he earns very less amount of money RS 5000 per month.  In this amount he has to manage his family with this small amount. Kahkasha has a younger  brother now he is 3 years old and her mother Farzana she  is a housewife she do  all the house hold works at her home and also sit with her children when they comes from school ,they try to give proper education to their child  so we hope that they will success in their life”

We are so pleased that Kahkasha is now doing well, and with your continued support we hope she will continue to shine.   

A monthly donation of £27 provides hope for the future for girls from very poor families. This support ensures that the girl remains in education and does not end up married off early or engaged in child labour.   

This week every donation to this project (up to $50 or £38) will be matched 60% by GlobalGiving. So a donation of £38 from a UK tax payer is worth £70.30 to us. Please consider an extra donation to help a girl like Kahkasha
