Did you know that India is the 4th most dangerous country for women and children to live in? Life is far from easy for Dalits, especially for Dalit women and children as they are most vulnerable to exploitation.
As many as 250,000 women are caught in temple prostitution in India right now, despite it being outlawed two decades ago. Girls as young as five years old are being dedicated to the temple. When they reach puberty, they are then forced into a lifetime of ritual sex slavery.
Education is one of the best ways to prevent this kind of prostitution. In this newsletter, I want to share with you a graduate success story—about Saroja, who was able to see her dream come true.
Thank you for your support over the summer. It means everything to those children living in rural India who are able to receive a high quality, English-medium education because of your generosity.
With a grateful heart,
