West Champaran, Bihar | Tanju Devi
Soni Kumari was part of India women under-14 team that won the Asian Football Confederation Tournament in 2013. Now she is the captain of the Under-14 Indian Football team. The government should take some initiatives to develop such rising stars but unfortunately, the government hasn't even taken cognizance of the issue, where a young girl from a backward background in West Champaran district has become the captain of the national team and yet she does not have a house to live in.
You can Help! SHARE the video widely and ACT NOW: please call the Executive Officer of Urban Development & Housing department on +91-9470488468 and ask him to make sure Soni gets a proper house immediately.
