She was leaving our home and it was great news!
I got word in late November that Suhani was going to be leaving New Horizons House. She was the first girl that we had received back in 2018 and had subsequently served as an extraordinary mentor to the younger girls. When I arrived in India in early December she had already left and so I drove 4 hours to meet up with her (no small feat in India!). Over lunch, she shared how her time at New Horizons had inspired her to want to become a policewoman and to help rescue other girls who had been trafficked as a minor. She contacted the district commissioner last summer and indicated she wanted to apply for admission into the police academy. He refused. She asked again. He refused again. She persisted and was eventually accepted into the program. Today, she is using the computer skills and language training she received at New Horizons to realize her dream. Suhani is planning on graduating late this year.
Why am I so eager to share Suhani’s story with you? Besides the obvious “feel good” nature of her story, it epitomizes the approach we hope you’ll take when you consider partnering with us at New Horizons. We don’t want our donors to simply feel like they are “giving to charity.” Rather, we want our donors to know that they are investing. What’s the difference? When you give to charity, you expect nothing in return. When you invest, you expect something in return. We want you to see that you are producing tangible outcomes in the lives of the girls that you are helping to support.
We currently have 37 girls at New Horizons with similar dreams for the future. Please consider making a recurring monthly investment at www.newhorizonshouse.org and let others know about the incredible opportunity we have to make a difference.
