Devi and her big dream in life

Life and Dreams

Short Story #7

Devi was born into an untouchable caste. When Devi was only an infant, her father contracted leprosy. Because of her father’s diagnosis, Devi’s family was outcast from their community and ended up homeless. Due to desperate poverty, Devi’s mother abandoned her family and the children ended up helpless. Now homeless and separated from her family, Devi would likely have been trafficked or starved to death had she not found refuge.

Now Devi has been a part of one of APCF’s children’s homes for 8 years and is doing well in school. She is lively and confident and dreams of one day being a doctor.
