Please Help a Girl Like Priya

By Jane Manson | Fundraising

Priya wants to work in a bank. This is a huge ambition. Priya’s mother is illiterate and earns a few rupees making paper bags and packets. Her father has a small stationery shop attached to the house. Total household income per month is 6000 rupees. Just £64 or USD73. Priya is a bright and enthusiastic 18 year old who joined our girl sponsorship programme 3 years ago when her parents were no longer able to support her education. Since joining the programme Priya has been able to stay in school and this year passed her class XII board exams and was admitted to university to study for a Bachelor of Commerce. Girls like Priya, first generation learners from very poor backgrounds, find it very difficult to fulfil their dreams. Poverty and social pressure drive them into early marriage where they simply repeat the cycle of illiteracy, poverty and drudgery endured by their mothers. Priya is fortunate that her family share her desire to make a better life and sought out the help Priya needs.

With continued support of about £30 a month, Priya will complete her degree and then take banking exams. With a good job she will be financially independent and able to make her own life decisions. It is a priceless gift.

Thank you.

There are many many more girls like Priya who need your support. Please consider a regular donation of £30 to give another girl a chance of freedom, choice and financial independence.
