Your kindness will ensure she can live with pride, dignity and hope.

Scottish students are waiting for exam results and planning for the future.

For young people like Nagajothi there is no plan for the future. It doesn’t matter how she was doing at school or what her hopes are because when she was 14 she was diagnosed with leprosy.

For many young people in India, leprosy stops their dreams in their tracks. It stops them from achieving their potential. They have similar dreams when they leave school as everyone waiting for their results just now or to those you and I had. To become a doctor or learn a trade. To meet someone. But for them, so often, leprosy stands in the way, like an immovable mountain.

People are so afraid of the disease that it stops young people like Nagajothi from getting a job. Employers are scared, and so are teachers. If you have leprosy, you can be prevented from studying and thrown out of school. Companies are afraid that you will curse their business. There doesn’t seem to be much hope for the future does there.

But you can change all that. Please give a gift today to provide them with training at a Leprosy Mission Vocational Training Centre.

When you give a gift today, you will be helping people like Nagajothi to learn a trade. What’s more, you will help them to get a job and be successful. What a precious gift!
