Kowsalya Cares For Her Mother

Kowsalya is in 7th grade in Agalanganallur. Her mother is has severe epilepsy and can no longer bring in even the meager wages she used to earn as a laborer. Kowsalya’s father divorced her mother for this reason.

Kowsalya does most of the household chores before going to school. She washes clothes and dishes, and sweeps the floor. She also struggles to find odd jobs to bring home money so she and her mother can eat.

Despite this level of responsibility at such a young age, Kowsalya is friendly toward all and cares for everyone. She has learned yoga, phonemic intelligence, and meditation through her local Tripura Foundation HoPE Learning Center. During weekends she takes her mother to temple nearby where her mother loves to spend time.

Kowsalya wishes to become a teacher when she grows up, but she is open to most courses of study. Her main goal in life is to earn enough money to be able to take care of her mother and perhaps others in need, too.

It doesn’t take much to provide light and sustenance to a special child like Kowsalya.

Right now, only $9 a month covers the costs of HoPE Center sponsorship, tutoring, lessons, materials, themed activities, and daily mini meals. For only $300 a month, you can sponsor an entire HoPE Learning Center filled with 40 children.
