Why sponsor this child?
Durga tags along with her mother to work. Her mother, Saraswati, cleans homes and washes dishes in other people's home. Her salary is $15/month. When asked why her daughter goes to work with her instead of going to school, she said, "the employer (house owner) provides us with lunch in the afternoon. This way my daughter can eat healthy food once a day. My daughter enjoys going to work with me".
The mother probably knows that sooner or later her daughter will be joining hands at her work. Because of their acute poverty, they don't even think about education. They are working for one happy meal a day.
Durga's father has left the family and re-married another women.
