Martina from Bangalore, India needs our help in completing her PU course. Her father is a drunkard who does not look after the family. He comes home drunk late at night most days, causing a lot of nuisance to the family. Most of the days, they all have to go and seek shelter at a convent close by to escape the violence at home. Her mother, Elizabeth is working as a helper at a factory nearby earning INR 6000 per month.
Martina completed her 1st year PU with help from the nuns at the convent, and few other well-wishers. The nuns also advised her to move into a hostel so that she would not be troubled by her father’s behavior. Course fee for second year PU is INR 25,000 and hostel fee comes to INR 40,000. The family approached MicroCharity for financial assistance since they are not able to afford the college fee.
