My Story

 

Hello!

 

My name is Deepjyoti and I am 20 years old.  I am in the 11th grade and making progress.  My favorite subject is Assamese.  When not in school, I like to spend time with my family.  I would like to work in the service industry when I grow up. 

 

 

 

I have severe hemophilia A.  Recent bleeds in my knee, elbow and ankle have caused me to miss a month of school and under go physical therapy.  I still require physical therapy.  The hospital is a 75-kilometer bus ride from my home.  The bus ride costs the same as a day's work for my father.

 

 

I live at home with my grandmother, parents and sister.  We live in a 4-room house in our village outside of Guwahathi.  The house is made of wood, concrete and bricks.  Meals are prepared outside on a kerosene burner.  Running water and toilet facilities are outside the house.  My sister is in her third year of a bachelors program.  My father works as a gardener and only makes $80/month.

 

My previous sponsor discontinued participation in the program.  I am currently looking for a new sponsor.
