Meet Sabita, the Founder of the Shanti School
"I built this school because when I was young, girls did not have chance to go to school. The girl must do all the work at the house. If a girl wanted to go to school, she had to hide and let no one know that she goes. When the school time was finished, she had to start her work. Time was very tight to do all. But I struggled and went and many, many problems easily I beared. This kind of situation gave me much knowledge for studying and strong courage to build this school. So I built this school mostly for the poor and the girls."
