Why sponsor this child?
Purna Gurung has led a hard life by any standards. He lost both of his parents at a young age and had to move in with an aunt. Unfortunately, due to her financial situation, Purna;s aunt is unable to provide him with proper meals and education. Therefore, at the age of 12, Purna has had to take responsibility to finance his own education and meals. He works at a local restaurant washing dishes, for a hot meal and money for his tuition. Early in the morning, Purna rushes to the restaurant to wash dishes before school starts. After a long day in school, he is back working in the restaurant again.
Purna had to grow up and be self relient at an early age. His daily work and school schedule reflects his proactive dedication to his education. If given support, Purna will be able to focus his energy in learning without having to worry about his next meal.
