Anushka: Nurturing Dreams Amidst Adversity with Little Lights Program

In the heart of Thalaivasl leprosy colony, we find the inspiring story of Anushka, a resilient 10-year-old girl facing life’s challenges with unwavering determination. As a bright and curious 4th grader, Anushka’s journey unfolds within Embrace a Village’s transformative Little Lights Program.

The Little Lights Program was initiated with a singular mission: to empower children impacted by leprosy to not only navigate the academic landscape but also to discover the boundless joy of learning about God. An integral aspect of this program is the provision of a nutritious meal each day, ensuring that no child goes to bed hungry.

Anushka’s grandparents, victims of leprosy, and her parents, grappling with financial hardship, faced the shadow of societal stigma cast upon their family. In the midst of this adversity, the Little Lights Program emerged as the beacon of hope for Anushka and numerous other children in desperate need. More than just an educational initiative, this program is a sanctuary where students find joy in learning and experience a boost in their confidence within the classroom.

Despite the growing financial crisis and escalating prices, the Little Lights Program remains a steadfast support for families like Anushka’s, providing not only academic assistance but also creating a safe, nurturing, and spiritually enriching environment for these children.

Anushka is not only a bright student who delights in reading stories from her books but also harbors a deep love for the Bible stories shared by our dedicated teachers every week. Her parents, overwhelmed by gratitude, find solace in the quality education and nutritious meals provided by Embrace a Village – a lifeline for their child and many others in the village.

Join us in celebrating Anushka’s growth, resilience, and the profound impact of the Little Lights Program on the lives of children navigating the challenges of leprosy-affected communities. Your support helps us illuminate their path with the light of education, fostering a future filled with promise, regardless of the adversities they face. Together, let’s continue nurturing dreams and providing the tools for a brighter tomorrow.
