Dasari is a young girl living near the coast of East India. She lives with her father and mother. Her father has a hunchback and has had a hard time securing long-term work. For now, he is a helper at a battery shop and her mother is a housemaid. Their income is very low and its impossible for them to provide the basic necessities for Dasari. Because of their low income, they are unable to send Dasari to school and therefore a sponsorship would allow her to attend AMGs boarding school. Their hopes and dreams for their daughter are for her to become an educated woman who is able to provide for herself. Dasari loves to study English and her favorite activities include drawing and playing Kho-Kho. Your sponsorship would mean so much to Dasari and her parents.
