It has taught me to appreciate the value of what I have today a dream for these underprivileged children, Tanvi said.
Along with friend Ishan Krishan, from a Singapore high school, Tanvi produced a film for the organization to help generate awareness about the exploitation of women and girls. The two spent about 4-1/2 hours interviewing girls and their parents, then translated the piece into English and edited the film in a local studio.
