Bhagawati's story

My name is Bhagawati. My mother died when I was 10, and my older brother and sister married. I thought my sister-in-law would be kind to me, but she mistreated me and only made me work.  I sent my brothers and sisters to school, but I did not get to study.  I used to cry. Now I don’t cry anymore. Shiva, in our village, started a literacy class through HELP. Before I was ashamed because I sent my children to school, but could not help them. Now I can read and write, and we are also learning more in agriculture and sewing classes.  One older “sister” was a model for us all. Even though she had poor eyesight, she wanted to learn, and studied hard.​ God is good, and brought literacy to those of us that did not have an opportunity to study in school.
