Review for Durga Tree International, Inc, Sparta, NJ, USA
I am so proud to be a supporter of Durga Tree International.
I would love to share just one recent example of why I have, and will continue to fiercely align myself with this life changing organization. In June of this year, Beth Tiger, Founder and Executive Director, informed me that due to the recent efforts of all the Durga Tree supporters, she was able to take one girl from the waiting list to be enrolled in one of the Durga Tree shelter programs in Thailand for the year. Beth sent me a photograph and shared some information about our 15 yr old “adopted daughter” Nana. She said she wanted to share her gratitude with each supporter because in Beth’s words - we are all Nana’s parents for this year.
Beth went on to tell me that Nana is from a large family. Her parents are laborers from Chiang Rai. They are very poor and move around a lot. So when Nana hit puberty she became very At-Risk. If we hadn’t moved her into this home, she would probably be trapped in the Bangkok slavery market right now. Thankfully, because of Durga Tree, instead Nana is now sheltered, receiving secondary education, receiving ESL, she is fed, she’s clothed and she’s receiving therapeutic care.
Nana is now safe and learning to become a proud and productive human being.
It’s important to know Nana is just one example of the many girls rescued by Durga Tree and each rescue is made possible because of every single person who supports each Durga Tree campaign. This means the world to me because I know we are changing lives - empowering one human soul at a time. All thanks to the work Durga Tree is doing.
