Why sponsor this child?
Suman Shrestha's family situation is unique and filled with many obstacles. Both of his parents are disabled, they are both mute and deaf. Their disability had made farming the only source of income for the family. However, their monthly income of $25 is not enough to support Suman in his education. Growing up in a family stricken by poverty and disability, he is determined to succeed. At age 8 he knows with certainty that he wants to be a pilot. His future goal is further supported by his love for math and school in general.
Suman has faced many adversities in life and knows that being uneducated is another form of disability. He is determined to work hard in overcoming the barriers to his education with the same enthusiasm and drive through which he has lived.
