Aisshwarya is living and studying in India. She really loves reading, especially science books.

Aisshwarya has already taken action for the environment before. She did this by telling students what they can do to protect the environment, and to motivate them to plant trees.

Currently, she is fighting against gender inequality. She noticed that girls are seen as the weaker gender in her environment. They have less rights than boys do, for example to education, health care, work and decision making. Her dream is a community in which there is no discrimination based on gender, and where boys and girls are equal.

Not only because violence against children is common in Liberia, but also because Keita has had to experience it up close. Read more about Keita's courageous battle To support Keita in his fight, we searched for local project partners with the same goal. This resulted in a long-term collaboration with project partner SEARCH, an organization that works against violence against children in Liberia.
