Four of the sponsored girls were introduced and sponsored through Seva Trust who also introduced Global Girl Power with 15-year-old Anjali, a victim of a recent acid attack in Ludhiana. Representatives of both organizations recently met and handed the first payment of Rs.50,000 to Anjali’s mother. Anjali is currently being treated at DMC Ludhiana.
Seva Trust team in India has been a great support this year by sharing their resources in India and making sure that every single penny goes to the right hands. In the near future, both organizations also plan to collaborate on more projects in India. They are also providing financial support to 11-year-old Kamaljit Singh, a student who is unable to write using his hands due to a congenital problem.
