Bipana is an extremely bright girl who has a real aptitude for learning and constantly receives top marks at school.
Bipana's mother left her and her father and two sisters, two years ago. She has not been heard of since. Bipana's father has now remarried. Bipana's step mother is extremely tough on both her and her sister, and refuses to pay school fees. The step mother has her own son and all efforts and expenses are spent on him as they see no value in educating girls.
Bipana's school has brought her situation to our attention and has asked us to intervene and cover school expenses to ensure Bipana remains in school.
