Sweta Sen | Tara Homes for Children

Wow, 3,365 of you have read this.

sweta senComing from a small town of India, I learnt humanity from the oldest tribes of India. I have seen poverty, politics, power, rebellion and so on since I was a child. As a child I have always been curious about why being a girl brings so many chains in this society. I pursued my study in English literature in college.

But a personal tragedy shook my world. I came out of the little bubble and I stood in a world where cruelty was diminishing hope. I was lost and helpless. Finally I chose to empower myself by studying social work and joined Tara to serve the children. Now I start my days with hugs and kisses from the children who once were abandoned of love and care, broken by several kinds of abuses.

My service goes beyond children when through rescuing the children, we reach out to the community. We empower the mothers to stand on their feet and fight domestic violence.
