Triveni, 10 years old, is from Annanagar in Tamil Nadu. She lives with her mother, father and three siblings in a small home. In Annanagar, the only form of work is making mud pots and grazing goats. Triveni’s family was struggling to earn enough to support Triveni’s education and often asked her to miss school to help, as her father was ill. However, after Salt of the Earth’s intervention, all this has changed. Our educational support and work in the wider community means that Triveni attends school on a regular basis. Triveni told us “I am very happy as my family no longer force me to stay and work, instead they encourage me to go to school. Thank you!”
