2023 Financial Need
Changing Destiny’s mission is to empower and educate. We do this by providing safe housing and the best academics possible so that every child in our program can grow up and follow their dreams. Your financial investment also covers health screenings, nutritious meals, extracurriculars, and more.
We believe English education has the power to break the cycle of injustice and lack of opportunity in a family’s life and give a child a chance in the ever-growing, modern South Asia and world.
Therefore, we educate our children in a high-quality, English-medium school. One where English is the primary language used during instruction.
Our school provides:
In addition, we provide on-campus, safe-housing; known as a hostel. This includes:
We strongly believe in working together to make a difference. It takes many voices to speak into one person’s life. We welcome teams, especially with international persons, to love on our children, to teach them new things, to give our children exposure to the “outside” world, and to practice their English-speaking.
We understand that the child will have a decision to make once they graduate. Will they return to the life they saw when they were a little child? Or, do they take everything they have been given, a changed destiny, and go change other destinies? Our dream is that through their years at our school and home, these children will take prominent jobs in society and change the world for the good. We are committed to their safety even as they transition into a dignified profession in the real world.
“When I grow up, I want to be a doctor so that I can help other people like the doctor did for my mom.” – Student, grade 6
On any given night the babies of sex workers are exposed to an unimaginable amount of atrocities and dangers. Often these little ones are physically and verbally abused, drugged to keep quiet through the night, left to wander the streets alone, or left lying next to their mother as she takes in client after client. These children are some of the most vulnerable.
In partnership with a trusted organization, we have started a night shelter for these precious babies under the age of five. This night care provides:
Having this night care shelter also provides the opportunity to connect with more women in the red-light areas. The more women we connect with allows us to hear more of their needs and desires and hopefully provide a solution to change their destiny.
We are in no way in support of what these women do every night. However, we care for the child who is otherwise left alone in their most vulnerable state. We care for the child that is forgotten. We care for the child that did not choose this life.
Our hope is that through this night care and through the relationships built, the mothers will want to send their children to our residential school.
We believe vocational training can ignite forgotten dreams and give the opportunity for a bright future with a dignified career. One injustice we work with is human trafficking and sexual slavery. Many women are stuck in this trade because of illegal debt, while many others are stuck because of their limited, to no, education. Vocational training empowers these women to fight for their future. They too have a right to education.
Our beauty program launched in response to many women’s interest in this skill. They spoke, we listened. They dreamed, we responded.
This training includes:
