Why sponsor this child?
Sabitri is the youngest child in her family. Her brother and sister are young energetic people. Her brother, Ram is 20 years old and is a sophomore in high school. Her sister, Gayatri, is 15 years old and is in 8th grade. They both help their parents do farming. Unfortunately, their father is mentally disabled. So her brother, Ram, works hard to bring additional income to the family for daily survival. He wants his two sisters to get education and have a better life.
Sabitri is only 12 years old but she understands the pain her brother carries. She said, "If I receive sponsorship, my brother doesn't have to worry about me and he can focus on school and work towards his high school degree." Sabitri realizes how hard its been for her mother due to fathers illness. So, she hopes to become a nurse someday and help people that are sick.
