Shakshi, date of birth 29/03/2005.


Shakshi lives in our hostel since the June 2013. Her brother Sandesh already lives one year longer in our hostel.

Their mother, Sheha, married when she was 14 years old. Once a day the father left his family, since that day there was no income and mother as well as the children were hungry many times. Because Sheha did not have any education it was difficult for her to find a job.

The children went to live with their grandmother, Sheha visited them sometimes. She found a job and brought money for her children. But once a day she stopped visiting them and since that time they didn’t have money for buying food. Because grandmother didn’t have money for buying food she took the children from school. They were walking on the streets and hoped to get some money for buying food. Because of the age and decreasing health of grandmother even this became impossible. A church pastor helped to place Sandesh and Shakshi in a hostel. But on a sad moment this hostel stopped and both children came back to grandmother. She contacted us and this is how Sandesh came to live in our hostel. For Shakshi was found another place to live but finally she could not stay there any longer.
