Dear Mann Deshi Supporters,

Rupali lives in Awarvadi village which is a drought prone area and since last three years there is no drop of water.  Her father is a goat and sheep rearer.   Her village was hurt by drought so her parents have to move to another village for 7 to 8 months. Rupali has two brothers and she stays at her home with her brothers.  Her big brother is in 10th and younger one is in 5th std.  As both mother and father are migrated full responsibility fall on Rupali.  She cooks for her brothers & then goes to the school.  Because of scarcity of money, her brother also goes to cut the wood.  After finishing this work they go to the school.  School is 4m away from home; it takes more than one hour to walk.  Though this is the age of playing-jumping this children’s are working so hard to help their family.

Rupali has to walk 4 kms to her school. She is currently in 6th standard. Mann Deshi has donated bicycle to Rupali and now she can continue her studies.  She owns a Mann Deshi bicycle, and now saves hours every school day in travel time; time which she spends focusing on her studies.

The bighearted donation by Mann Deshi partners enables young girls like Rupali to overcome the challenges & fulfill their dreams.
