Just like Neha, Bhoomi (name changed), who is a teacher now with Carmel, had a harrowing past. Her father is mentally ill and left the family one fine day only to not return. Her mother passed away a few years ago and left Bhoomi and her siblings orphan at the mercy of God. None of her relatives accepted them or came to their rescue when the land-lord of her house asked her to vacate the house. That was the time, Carmel came to our rescue, says Bhoomi. I have not only completed my grade XII with their help but also I was given an opportunity to work with them as Teacher. They also got admission for my further studies and my job with Carmel helps me to take care of my younger sister who is now in XIIth grade.
