 Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

I would like to share the story of Akansha-

Akansha lived at Palashi with her father & Mother, she has a fourth sister. Her father was drinking more and making violence at home. So Fed up her father drinks, her mother moves with four daughters to her uncle's home. After moving there, her mother started working as a bricklayer and managed their family financially.

Unfortunately, One of her sisters was continuously being sick so the more money was spent on her hospitalization. Also the lack of transportation was from her place to school so she was delayed to the school daily and missing her important classes. She was punished by her teacher as well.

Aksnsha wanted to buy a cycle but she couldn't afford it. She wanted to overcome her condition and wanted to take an education. Akansha was going to school by walking 1 km. Akansha wanted to study and she was a clever girl. One day, Mann Deshi staff went to the school for training where she was studying. Mann Deshi staff asked for the needy girl's name for the cycle. Teacher suggested Akansha’s name for the cycle and filled a form. After that proceeds, In Mann Deshi Mahotsav, Akansha received the cycle from Mann Deshi Foundation. She was so happy with Mann Deshi Foundation’s support of the cycle.

Thank you so much for all our GlobalGiving Supporters !!!

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

I would like to share the story of Shivanjali:

Shivanjali lives in Vaghioshi village in a family of four members. Her father worked as a bricklayer so financial problems were in her family. She was studying into the 9th standard at Andori and it was nearly 2 km from her place where she belonged. Shivanjali was going to school by walking and this daily walk from her village to her school distance was taking too much time to reach up to school and also it was affecting her studies.

One day, the Mann Deshi staff went to her school at Andhori for providing the information regarding the “Freedom Ride” program. In this program we offered the bicycle to the needy girls. If your school has any needy girls to take this opportunity so you can suggest that girl's name. Then the teacher suggested the Shivanjali’s name and about her financial situation. According to all conditions, we provided a bicycle to Shivanjali.

“Now shivanjali saves her time for her studies and she is glad to have a bicycle”, she says.

Thank you so much for all our supporters !!!

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

We would like to share the story of Rupali.

Rupali is from Malwadi village in Maharashtra. She is in the 9th standard. 

Rupali belongs to a poor home. Her family is barely able to make ends meet. Because of this, Rupali cannot purchase any form of transport to reach school. Everyday, she has to walk 5km to reach her school. This arduous journey often tires her out and leaves her unable to pay attention in school or play with her friends. Further, her parents are agricultural workers which leaves Rupali in charge of the household chores and the caring of her little sister every morning before school.

In order to help children like Rupali, Mann Deshi Foundation is providing bicycles for them to commute to school in a quicker and easier way. Because of her new bike, she is able to reach school on time and pay attention to her studies! 

Rupali say’s “I am grateful to Mann Deshi for giving wings to my dream. My dream is to become a doctor and one day, I will achieve my dream."

Thank you so much for all our GlobalGiving supporters.

Aarti says, "She is independent now; she feels more confident and determined. She wants to work hard and become a Teacher. "

Aarti is a resident of Wadi village which is located in Vaduz. She is 12 years old and studies in 7th grade. She lost her mother at the age of 5, 2 years after her mother's death, her father also died. She now lives with her grandmother, who works as a daily wage labour.

Aarti's school is far away from her house which is about 4 km away. She goes to school on foot, which took a lot of time and made her tired, so she did not pay enough attention to study. Her grandmother cannot buy a bicycle for her because her financial situation is not good. She now received a bicycle from the Maan Deshi. She started supporting her grandmother in household chores and also gets ample time for her studies.
