Why sponsor this child?
“You go to work Mummy, I will take care of my little brother," Sweta said to her mother. Sweta’s mother works as a housemaid to feed her children. It was not easy for her to explain their struggle with poverty. She weeps as she tells us about her husband who went to Malaysia and never returned, leaving them with a debt of three hundred thousand rupees. Sweta's family of three is living on their own now after also being abandoned by their grandparents.
Sweta is a very hard-working student, never too shy to ask questions, and her teachers praise her curiosity and will to study. When Sweta sees other kids from her neighborhood going to a boarding school, she never wants to quit her own school.
"I married at a very young age," her mother told us, "which left me with all these problems. I do not want this for Sweta".
By sponsoring Sweta, you can help her achieve her full potential and provide relief to a hardworking single mother.
