The Educational Needs Fund Gives Children like Mamatha the Chance to Work Toward Their Dreams

Mamatha is a young girl living in a poor region in India. Her family is seen as a lower kind of citizen, and she is often told to leave the homes of wealthier friends.

For most of her life, Mamatha has been told that she is “untouchable.” Then, Mamatha enrolled in a Compassion center where she learned that God loves her and has created her to fulfill a purpose. She has been encouraged to dream about what she will do when she overcomes poverty.

Today, Mamatha dreams of being a doctor. She is still in school, studying hard, and hoping to one day fulfill her dream. Because of the Compassion Educational Needs fund, Mamatha has the opportunity to see her dream become reality.
