An inspiring mom

“My name is Kamala. I am 32 years old. I live in Hallegudadhahalli, Bangalore. When I was 12 years old, I dreamed of studying well and growing up to work in a big company but at that young age, my parents forced me to marry. My dreams died with my childhood. My children went to school and I dreamed once again, that they will go to school, learn and have a good life. My children also started attending the after-school programme at Oasis India.

Things fell apart when my husband’s alcohol addiction got out of hand and he could not take care of our family anymore. His health deteriorated and I was unable to take care of all the finances alone. This led to both my children dropping out of school and they went on to take up jobs in the market to supportme. I felt a big burden that I ruined my children’s life. During this difficult time, Oasis India helped my eldest son complete his 12th grade exam. I see that my dreams can come true through my son.I will continue to fight for my sons to study and do well in life.”
