At first glance, Vidya comes across as a serious young lady. However, once she warms up to you, she will gift you with an amazing smile.
Vidya enjoys learning Marathi at school and hopes to be a pediatrician when she grows up, because there was no one in her village to help all the small children who were hurt or sick. She wants to grow up and be able to take care of them all.
Before coming to Grace House, she didn’t have hope that she would ever get to have a job as an adult. There was very little food; her father would hunt for lizards to feed the family, She also did not have friends.
But Grace House changed that for her. She has hope that she will become a doctor, she loves learning, she loves having her Grace House sisters around her, and she feels safe here — something she did not feel when she lived at home.
Vidya loves her sponsors and is grateful for what they do for her.
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.
