Behiriya is a single mother with no family around to help her.
She has raised her 7 year old daughter mostly alone as she had to escape from her husband when her child was a baby. Behiriya cleans houses and washes clothes to make some income, however, the money she makes goes to rent. The landlord is pressuring her to pay more for rent despite the fact that her home is made of wood and mud and the roof leaks. The families that she works for provide her with food and one employer pays for her child’s school tuition. She has an 8th grade education but does need some medical attention for her eyes as she is having difficulty reading. Energetic and communicative, Behiriya is keen to learn skills that would help her become better employed or to start her own business.
Through sponsorship Behiriya's family will be able to receive holistic support such as such as food, housing, medical care, spiritual care and counselling, education, health and life skills training, income generation and business development opportunities. Being part of HFK’s Family Empowerment Program will also give this family an opportunity to participate in many of our education, community, and children's programs.
