Sponsor A Child - Chitra's story

Chitra, aged 13, is the first child that we have sponsored to go to school, at HEEALS. She is being sponsored by Sonika,  a member of the HEEALS team.  She is in 8 th  class and loves science! Her mother works as a maid and Chitra has two younger brothers. Due to the recent loss of her father, her mother was unable to pay for all of her children to attend school and so Chitra had to drop out. With the persuasion of her school, and HEEALS, Chitra is now back in school and has a whole year’s worth of education paid for her. We wish her all the best in the year ahead!  Be A Sponsor  Emails Us : communications@heeals.org  From left to right: Chitra’s mother, Sonika (Chitra’s sponsor) and Chitra.

Girls Need An Education ,Not An Early Wedding .

Child marriage is a huge problem in India, affecting the livelihoods of thousands of children, whilst also being a huge drain on the economy of India as a whole. Despite the 2006 Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, child marriage still remains a massive issue. According to Girls Not Brides, an estimated 47% of girls are married before the age of 18. Child marriage must be tackled in order to improve the livelihoods of the 47% of girls who get married before 18. Child marriage increases the likelihood that girls will become pregnant at an early age, with a UNICEF report from 2012 concluding that in the same year, one in six girls aged 15-19 had already given birth to their first child. At such a young age, girls are more likely to contract illnesses and complications and globally, childbirth is consistently cited as the leading cause of death for women aged 15-19. Furthermore, child marriage also has a direct impact on whether or not a girl goes to school. Many children drop ou
