Why sponsor this child?
Mina is part of a six members family where parents have put a high priority on their children educations. Her oldest brother, Dinesh is 22 years old and is a senior year in high school. Sarawasti and Laxmi are two daughters in freshman and Junior in high school. All four children are currently attending public school.
Her father, Lila, does agriculture and mother, Parbati, works in a hotel. Both father and mother works daily to bring enough income to support their four children and their education. Lila says that its been an extremely hard life for him and his wife with daily labor and struggling to bring enough food on the table. Lila can't remember the last time he bought new clothes for his wife. But they are dedicated in sending their children to school. Their oldest son, Dinesh will be graduating from high school and is hoping to attend a college. Lila is scared of the future because he doesn't have enough money to send Dinesh to school. Any support to his family would slowly help all four children get a college degree in the future.
Mina, who is only 10 years old, is smart and has learned from her brother and two sisters. She knows that education is important and hopes to become a teacher someday.
