Why sponsor this child?
Six year old Shivani Shaha lives with her mother and an elder brother. Her father went to Malaysia a year ago for employment, however, the family has not heard from him since. There has not been any news about his well-being from the contractors, nor has he sent any money to the family. Shivani’s mother fulfils the financial needs of the family by working as a laborer. Unfortunately her work is not permanent; she gets called in only when needed. The family has to go without eating anything when her mother is not called in for a few consecutive days.
Shivani’s mother is aware of the importance of education and health in her children’s lives, but she loathes herself for not being able to provide Shivani with education she deserves. She told us that it would be her last wish if anybody could help her educate her daughter who is very enthusiastic about going to school along with the other kids around her.
