Lilua Akter, a 17 years old girl, drew attention of SAWAB about 4 years back. Her father died in an accident when she was only 6 years old. She has three more sisters and her mother had to struggle a lot to manage the day-to-day livelihood. The poverty drove her to work as a house maid at a tender age and Lilua was dropped from school. But when she met SAWAB representative in 2017 and was encouraged to re-start her schooling, she was excited and very much happy.
Despite all her family setbacks, Lilua has excelled academically. Now she reads in Class XI at Kamarpara High School in Damurhuda under Chuadanga district. She aspires to become a Lawyer in future to assist particularly the female folk of the villages and also likes to work for the orphan girls to lessen their struggle.
