Girl disappeared

Posted February 15, 2020 from Nepal

 When I was working in the one organization, that time we provided girls to scholarship for completing their school. And, I cared them, loved them and mentored them. I always visited their house and encouraged their parents  about importance of girls education. 

Therefore, many girls who passed School Leaving Certificate, they are in better positions in now and doing good in academic as well as in their livelihood.

But, one girl, her father was died and her mother married with other guy, was lived with neighbor. And she was supporting to neighbor cows and goat and she lived in that neighbor house. So I always  went to that neighbor house and mentored to him/her for keeping continue to that girl's education. 

But they promised to continue to her education... After providing her to scholarship to study in school, she continued three years her study. But, suddenly one day she disappred/missed from school. Then I went to her school and that neighbor house. They did not give any response. During that time, that girl's age was 15 years.  I asked every body but some said she did marry to one boy. Some said they didn't know. 

Still, I could not find where are she and what is her condition.

Dear Anita,
This is heartbreaking, and must be so much more for you having met her and offered her such encouragement, only to witness her disappearing. And profoundly heartbreaking for whatever this girl is experiencing. This is the complete lack of control that so many women and girls live with, that we are here together to change. It is by the telling of these stories that we can point to the reality. It is such a basic human right to have the right to choose what we do with our own lives.

Sister Anita you tried in your own way to know that girl's whereabout but to no avail.
You made good efforts.
I pray she should be in good hands where her rights won't be violated in any way.
