Smriti is 11 years old. She comes from a nearby village called Rupsa. Smriti's dad has been out of contact for seven years. Some believe that he might be in India, but no-one knows for sure if he is in India or dead. Smriti's mom had already married another man and has her own children, and considers Smriti as not her responsibility. Before coming to our hostel in 2018, Smriti had been living at three relatives' houses on a rotational basis. Now, she is happy to find a home at our hostel facility.
