Why sponsor this child?
Tica Maya Bhujel is ten years old and is in the fourth grade. Before her birth, Tica’s father left and is still unreachable. She is challenged with hearing problems. Tica walks 45 minutes to school, showing her dedication to her studies. Her teachers say that she is well disciplined and is always there on a regular basis despite her long walk. Her mother cleans hotel rooms, bringing only a meager income into their household; insufficient for feeding the family and sending Tica to school. Tica’s dream is to go to school so that she can become a nurse and to earn enough money to take care of her mother.
