Sabita is like most teenagers. She loved to chat on the phone, explore her town with friends and go to school. Then she had her accident.
After going outside to help hang the washing, Sabita was electrocuted by a dangling wire. When she awoke in a hospital bed and looked up at her father, he tearfully told her she’d been injured, and the doctors had to amputate both her hands.
“After the operation when the doctor bring me outside I cried so hard. I didn’t eat anything for one month,”
In that moment, Sabita says she thought her life was over.
Sabita held these fears because too often, girls are judged, abused and denied an education because of their disability. Because of this, they are more likely to face violence, exploitation and exclusion from society.
