Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Help is Beyond the Money

--by kmbhai, posted Aug 12, 2014
A 15 year old girl who belongs to minority community had dropped her education due to some financial problems.

Her father was a labourer in a leather factory, but now he doesn't have any work and her mother used to do some work at home and earn something, but it is not sufficient for a five member family, so the girl had to drop her education.
But she is talented and got 65% marks in her 10th grade board exam and she has a strong will to study further. When I heard about it, I decided to help.
Yesterday, I went to her home and gifted her 1000 INR so that she could continue studying and go for higher education. She was very happy, and had an innocent smile on her face. Her parents were also happy, and thanked me.
I also felt happy, and good.
