Support the family of Lavanya

CrowdKash will not charge any platform fee on your contribution to this campaign!

M. Lavanya, who was a student of Sacred Heart Higher Secondary School, Thirukattupali in Thanjavur, Tamilnadu.  She commited suicide after she was forced and tortured for nearly 2 years by school authorities in order to convert her religion. Lavanya was a Hindu daughter of poor farm laborers. She was school topper in her 10th standard (SSLC board exam) and was studying in 12th standard at the time of her death. She committed suicide by drinking poison.   She was also told by the school authorities that she will not be allowed to continue her studies if she does not convert. School authorities even canceled her leave to go home for the Pongal festival and forced her to do chores like cleaning toilets, washing dishes and accounting. Lavanya courageously showed her resistance and always refused to convert. She consumed the pesticide which was used in the garden to end her life.  She went through hell for nearly 10 days before her death as her body organs shut down.

The fund raising event is to support the poor family of Lavanya as this incident has left the family in shock. The funds raised from this campaign will be transferred to the Family’s account.    We know that no amount of money can bring back a life, but this fundraiser will act as a security for the family's future.
