There are 600 million adolescent girls worldwide ready to take the stage as young adults. 80 million of those live in India. That’s a powerful force of young ladies ready to make the world a better place. Unfortunately, we also know that the vast majority of those 80 million live in poverty. They are at-risk for sex-trafficking, child labor, and being married off as young as 13 or 14 years old. But they don’t have to be. We know how to free these young girls from the systemic chains of poverty and discrimination.
At just 14, Jaya’s life shattered.
There are thousands of other girls just like Jaya waiting to be rescued. They need someone to fight for them.
“THE REASON I DECIDED TO SPONSOR A CHILD THROUGH DFN WAS BECAUSE I WAS MOVED WHEN I LEARNED FROM A FRIEND WHO SHARED HOW THE POOR AND MARGINALIZED PEOPLE OF INDIA ARE DENIED ALL RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES. HE SAID, “THEY JUST WANT SCHOOLS TO EDUCATE THEIR CHILDREN.” I AM A FIRM BELIEVER THAT EVERYONE IS CREATED SPECIAL AND IS LOVED EQUALLY. I ALSO STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO FREEDOM. NO CHILD SHOULD BE DENIED THAT OPPORTUNITY TO GET EDUCATED.”
“WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE PLIGHT OF CHILDREN IN INDIA, I THOUGHT, “THAT’S TERRIBLE. NO ONE SHOULD BE TREATED THAT WAY NO MATTER HOW RICH OR POOR THEY ARE.” I DID SOME RESEARCH TO GATHER MORE BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE. MY HEART ACHED FOR THOSE PEOPLE AND I KNEW I NEEDED TO DO SOMETHING FOR MY ANNUAL NEIGHBORHOOD FUNDRAISER. I RAISED $160 FROM BAKED GOODS IN JUST A FEW HOURS, AND MY PARENTS MATCHED THAT. I AM SO HAPPY TO SHARE WITH THOSE IN INDIA WHO NEED IT THE MOST.”
“WE DIDN’T REALIZE AT FIRST, BUT THE IMPACT WAS SO MUCH GREATER THAN MEETING THE NEEDS OF A CHILD. MY CHILDREN ARE PART OF THE TEAM AND PRAY OFTEN FOR THE GIRLS NEEDING RESCUE. THEY ARE ASKING CHALLENGING QUESTIONS AND IT’S SHAPING THEIR WORLD VIEW TO BE ONE THAT DEMANDS COMPASSION FOR THE POOR AND MARGINALIZED.”
