Dhani with her bike
Dhani with her bike

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

‘I feel happy to go to school every day’

Dhani hails from the pardhi community and is from the Karnataka state. She resides with her family at Kewatevasti, Mhaswad. Her parents sell lemon and chilies and also work as daily-wage laborers and stone-breaking work. Dhani has two sisters and three brothers. Her sisters also help the parents by selling lemons & chilies. As the people of this community do not stay in one place for long, they get deprived of proper education and other government scheme benefits. They do not have a ration card, voter ID card, etc. Mann Deshi felt that these children should be brought into the mainstream of society and be given their due. We met Dhani and asked her to visit Mann Deshi’s sports ground for practicing running. On the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8, 2022, Dhani and her sister Sakina were given bicycles to come and practice on the field. Mann Deshi Champions also took the initiative of enrolling Dhani and her siblings at the Zilla Parishad School Mhaswad so that they are not deprived of education. Now, Dhani and her siblings go to school every day. “My siblings and myself go to school every day now and we are happy,” says Dhani.

Thank you so much for all our supporters !!!
