Dilish is not studying because of financial difficulties, although she is a sound-minded child and bright enough to become a doctor. She loves to serve the community, especially vulnerable people. When she was a teenager she started a project that has now coordinators in all towns in the Lango sub-region. They have allocated collection stations in each town where people can leave their used clothes, which the coordinators collect and send to Dilish and she then donates to orphans and vulnerable children. She also talks to children and discourages them to commit suicide as they are overwhelmed by problems. She also reads bible verses to them. The positive actions taken by Dilish created awareness to local people to see children as future leaders.
