Saraswoti is from Ramauli village. Her family lives in squatter settlements and works as sand Sievers and fish throughout the day for a living. Although they worked hard, they hardly made any savings and could not afford school fees for her. Saraswoti left her studies and got engaged in her family work at the riverside.
When she was assessed, her passion for studies was found to be high; so was her risk of being trafficked and abused at the riverbank. She was enrolled back to school under the Captivating Village Project’s scholarship program.
She is talented and secured second position in the recent interschool quiz competition and expressed her joyfulness and was thankful for the support.
The Captivating Village Program literally transforms the circumstances for 15- 30 out-of-school girls in this village, by offering them a scholarship and mentoring them back into the school system. The Captivating Village Program is literally transforming the lives of all out-of-school girls found in selected remote impoverished villages. Our thanks to Brad Geelan and the Lightstream Family Trust for making Sarawoti’s education dreams come alive again, along with another 30 girls just like her in the Ramauli Village.
