Girl Power

Dreams do come true 

Shubangi is one of our longest attending Balbhavan beneficiaries who we have proudly watched grow up over the past 12-13 years. She lives in one of our poorest slums with her 2 younger sisters and brother. Her father is one of the ubiquitous bottled water sellers plying bus stands and her mother is a maid.

 

As well as completing her final years of a BA in social work she is campaigning for girls' education as a peer mentor for our Malala campaign. Having watched all her friends give up their education in favour of marriage, the 22 year old is determined to complete her degree and join the police force before settling down herself. Having grown up attending our evening study classes she still turns up every night to teach and inspire the next generation and is a great role model for other girls living in slums.

 

On top of all it all she also has a passion for football and is a member of our women's team and having represented Snehalaya and Maharashtra in the Slum Soccer state and national championships and has just been selected to represent India in the Homeless World Cup in Cardiff, UK
