Why sponsor this child?
Menuka is the youngest among 3 sisters. The family of 5 looks like a happy family from outside, but they struggle with uncertainty about income and stability. 10 year old Menuka is fond of dancing and acting, but her real dream is to become a doctor.
“We are our 3 daughters and we haven’t compromised in anything that is within our capacity,” says Menuka’s father. Her father is working as a laborer and her mother works in a tea garden. Their work is seasonal, therefore their income is very uncertain.
“Education is important,” says Menuka’s mother. Menuka’s family deeply understands and values education, and despite the hardship, Menuka and her two elder sisters attend a government school. Your sponsorship will give Menuka an opportunity to receive quality education and give her a chance to fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor.
