Hetal at a tender age has realized that poverty can come in the way of anyone's dream. Instead of going to school, Hetal makes the rounds of four to five houses each day and takes care of her father, till her mother and elder sister return. Hetal's father has been bedridden for two years now, due to an accident. Since then, life has taken a bitter turn for Hetal. The only respite in Hetal's life comes from her dream of becoming an airhostess when she grows up.
Smile Foundation's Mission Education programme has so far directly put more than 200,000 children like Hetal into the path of empowerment through education.
Like Hetal, there are 17 million children in India working as child labour. At least 62% of the total out-of-school children in India are girls. Last year, 51% of the total beneficiaries of Mission Education programme were girls.
