Deepa lost her mother in 2010 and her father abandoned her. She lives with her old grand mother. Her father neither supports nor visits her.
They used to live in a small hut at Kannangudi a village in Keerapalayam Block. In the recent rains the hut was damaged. Deepa is in 3rd standard.
Through the Eureka Homes project, we were able to build a home for Deepa.
I went to inaugurate the homes which were built by Sodews with support from AID. I felt that by building this home for her, we have ensured a safe and secure roof for Deepa to stay with her grand mother who had no other options.
We will also be providing educational support to Deepa so that she can learn, grow confident and sustain herself. There are so many Deepas throughout our country and wish someday they all will get a safe and secure place to live!
