Tejal wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She loves studying whatever homework her teachers give her each night. She has a sweet giggle and loves to color - especially with a yellow crayon or marker, as she will tell you. She's also quick to let you know she's excited by her favorite foods - she loves to eat chicken and chocolate!
Tejal never attended school before Grace House. Instead, her days were spent following her mother around and playing in the village.
She now says that, even though getting up early for school is hard and she has to do more things each day (study, wash, chores and school), she enjoys living at Grace House because she is learning things she never knew existed. And this makes her happy and curious about other things around her, she tells us.
At Grace House she is impressed by the gifts brought by visitors and the clothing she receives - things she didn't experience when she lived at home with her mother as there was very little money.
Tejal tells us one more important thing - she would love a sponsor who brought her chocolate!
A monthly sponsorship of a child at Grace House India is used to cover all our girls' living expenses. These expenses include clean water, nutritious meals, a private, Christian education, school supplies, tutoring, her clothing and any routine medical care and medications. No administrative expenses are ever taken from your contribution, 100% of your giving is directed exactly as you designate. * Dipali is partially sponsored and needs an additional $95 monthly to complete her sponsorship.
