Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,
We just received the attached photograph of one of our beneficiaries in Nepal and we wanted to share it with you.
Eleven year-old Purnima was literally born in a Kathmandu factory where her parents worked as carpet weavers. She and her two brothers knew nothing about the outside world, but only the pain that came from her alcoholic fathers’ drunken rages and the hunger from barely eating two meals a day.
In Purnima’s world, carpet weaving was an exhausting daily routine until June 29, 2010 when a GoodWeave inspector discovered her. She is now enrolled in a second level class at GoodWeave’s rehabilitation center and receiving counseling to help cope with her tragic upbringing.
With your support, Purnima has entered a new world, as you can see from the image of her giggling, and she hopes one day to be a doctor to help other children.
Thank you for making this possible,
