The scholarship fund in Northern India has helped 16 students to move ahead with their education. Two female students had almost given up their studies after grade 8. In India, girls are neglected and boys are given more privileges.
One of the girls, Ruth has had a difficult life because of her gender. After she was born, her parents adopted a son, and later her father left and never returned. Her mother was trying to arrange her daughter’s marriage, but because she is underage, we advised her mother not to do it. Thankfully her mother took our advice and stopped. The school is very happy that they are able to help her, guide her, and give her both moral and financial support.
We praise God that Ruth is able to trust and rely on God to help her through all these obstacles in her life. Please pray with us for Ruth and many other girls like her!
