Why sponsor this child?
Anshu Dhimal is a very smart kid who has a very healthy and fit body. Although he is growing up in an extremely poor family, he is very rich in his looks. He has an ambition to be a policeman. Anshu belongs to a marginalized ethnic group who shares their habitat only on the eastern Terai belt of Nepal. He loves going to school and being together with his friends; this is how he keeps a smile the whole day.
Anshu’s mother and father stay out working the whole day. He has a habit of making the best use of his time until his father and mother return back home. During our home visit, Anshu’s teacher reported to us that there are no hard and fast rules in school, but Anshu has not left any chance to be scolded and always submits his homework on time.
Anshu’s father expressed his guilt about being poor and explained that finding something to eat each day and figuring out how to survive life is a big deal for them, and they want their son to be in boarding school. Unfortunately, it’s beyond their capacity and they cannot take such a big risk. The home Anshu is growing up in sits on government property, but he is unaware of these facts. Anshu is shielded from these family worries since his mother also works the whole day as a manual laborer, carrying his youngest 6-month-old brother with her.
