Why sponsor this child?
Bijaya is eight years old and is in the second grade. He has four sisters. With a total of five children, Bijaya's parents are having a very hard time. When his mother is asked why she had so many children she replied, â€œMy in-laws wanted a grandson and my husband wanted a son. And today I worry about my children's future.â€
Bijaya says that he loves going to school. He even loves doing his homework. He says that when he grows up he wants to become a doctor because his sister gets sick a lot and they don't have money for her treatment.
At such a young age Bijaya understands how hard his parents work to feed the family. He says that if he receives sponsorship to attend school, he will study hard and be the top student in his class.
