As you know, during this special time of the year, it's important to remember those of us who may struggle and need some help.
Above picture is of our 6th grader Vaishnavi, 4th grader Anusha with their mother and little sister. Their father is daily labourer who earns less than $2/day if he finds any work. They excel in their academics and sports, they want to grow up to be a doctor and teacher and want to give back to the same community. Their only hope is VT Seva schools run for children in tribal areas (Allampally, Beersaipeta).
