Sanika comes from a poor family from a village. Her father was an alcoholic, did not support the family and was abusive towards her mother and the children. Due to this her mother died from depression. Sanika has four brothers who continue to live in the village with her grandmother. Sanika was not able to bear the abusive behavior of her father and the neglect of her grandmother. She ran away from home.
A kind-hearted person found and brought her to our shelter. She was admitted into one of our children homes and welcomed into a loving home which offered her comfort, companionship, nourishing food, education and the possibility of a secure future.
Sanika now feels safe and happy. She is intelligent and a fast learner who enjoys dancing and singing. She is very creative; she loves painting and craft work. She attends our Shanti Niketan, Non-formal School and has made a number of friends. She attends extra coaching after school. Now she can read and write and communicate well in English.
