Dep has a new book at school this year. Along with reading, writing, and arithmetic, you provided a comic book for her that tells her she is "More Precious Than Gold." Through an engaging story and colorful pictures, Dep will learn that she is valuable, that she has a right to be protected, and the importance of adult helpers and good friends. Those are messages she may not hear anywhere else. Minority tribes frequently are skeptical of schooling and arranged marriages are common--even for girls as young as 12 years old.
Your gifts of love and compassion tell Dep that she has purpose and a future. Thank you!
