Vakati is nine-years-old and is a 2nd grade student at the Flaiz Memorial School in Narsapur, India. Her brother has serious health problems due to malnutrition, and both of her parents are also in poor health.
It is unknown what her parents do for a living, but all money earned is not enough to pay for good medical care for her younger brother.
Vakati needs help in continuing her studies. When Vakati grows up, she would like to become a nurse. Her teachers say she has good grades and is motivated to learn.
