Maria is a young woman whose mother worked in the red light district near the city of Mumbai in India. She died of AIDS, leaving Maria on her own.
Maria now lives at an orphanage that is funded by a CFC-supported organization. With their help, she completed her high school education and has started her first year of university. After she completes her studies, she hopes to become an accountant – a dream she is well on her way to achieving.
To the orphanage, their supporting organization and all those who have contributed, she says “Thank you for helping me to become an independent young woman.”
