Why sponsor this child?
Tika Shankar has had a turbulent and unstable life when compared to most 5-year girls. Her mother had her at an extremely young age of 15 years. In the past 5 years, Tika’s mother has struggled to raise a daughter all by herself. Tika’s mother works on a labor-intensive job the whole day making less then $2 a day, while Tika’s grandmother looks after her. The stigma of being a young, single parent and the lack of financial stability makes it impossible for Tika’s mother to even consider educating Tika. However, without an education, Tika is very likely to follow the same path as her mother and struggle everyday to live.
Through education, Tika’s future is much brighter, filled with many opportunities. Please help us give Tika back her childhood and a bright future.
