Meet Payel! Payel is known in her village of Hotor as a strong character who is very keen on her education. Even while being raised in a conservative family in extreme poverty, Payel always had big dreams. As a daily wage laborer, her father earned barely enough for the family to eat, so providing for his daughter’s education was impossible. Facing pressure from all sides to drop out of school to help her family, Payel feared that she would perpetuate the struggles of her parents and her childhood.

The news of this situation reached NISHTHTA, YGB’s NGO partner in West Bengal, who stepped in for Payel with the SHE (Scholarship for Higher Education) project. With SHE’s support, Payel graduated from secondary school, then completed a BED, and is now in the process of completing her MA. Payel is deeply grateful for her life that was transformed by the SHE project, and she continues to dream big dreams.

Please donate to YGB’s five-year scholarship for higher education (SHE Project) to help turn Payel’s and other youths’ dreams into realities. SHE currently funds the education of 400 disadvantaged youths so that they can earn their college degrees. Just $250 per year or $20 per month can support one student to transform their life completely. Join us here or at the LINK IN BIO.
