Aasana was born into a poor, orthodox Hindu family. She belongs to a caste called Matang, who are considered untouchable. Her parents are illiterate and under-employed. Her father works as brick maker, daily wages laborer. Her mother does not work, because of health limitations. The family lives in a small mud hut in a slum that lacks basic facilities, proper food, and education. Aasana is very smart, but because of financial crisis, her father was not able to send her to school. She is now receiving an education through the CDC Program.
The Child Development Center (CDC) is a place where children come before and after school. It provides free tuition, school accessories, clothes and nourishment to children who would otherwise not be able to attend school at all. Here children are also taught about the love of Christ.
Through your sponsorship and prayers, Aasana will continue to have opportunities to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually.
