Why sponsor this child?
Kushum Danwar is a bright eight year old girl, currently studying in Surya Jyoti English Boarding School in Grade One.
Kushum’s mother explains that she and her husband have had trouble managing money to pay for her academic expenses. They have to manage their living on less than five dollars ($5) per day, an income through daily manual labor which is very unreliable and extremely nominal to meet their daily expenditure. Whatever money they save is also spent on Kushum’s medical expenses as they had already lost their eldest child due to pneumonia, and they don’t want Kushum to face such an occurrence.
An ambition to see a bright future for their child, a common desire of every parent, has turned out to be the only desire of Kushum’s parents for which they pay a huge cost. They comprome their own basic needs to fulfill Kushum’s academic needs.
Kushum’s right to education and a bright future is the only uplifting promise for this vulnerable family. As a famous proverb goes, “droplets of water from an ocean,” the first drops of assistance will help secure not only a child’s future but will also help stabilize the future of the whole family.
