SPONSORSHIP - A BRIDGE OF LOVE
“AN APPEAL” “We are guilty of many errors, But our worst crime is Ignoring children, Neglecting the fountain of life, Many of the things we need can wait The CHILD can not To him we can not say “Tomorrow” His name is “TODAY”! Schooling is all about “playing” & “enjoying”. The U.N. declarations for the Rights of the Child guarantee “free and compulsory education for all, without any discrimination and no hazardous employment to any child below 14 years of age”.
But our children here are exposed to a life of hardships to make both ends meet, slogging from day till night to earn money, surviving on a frugal meal imbalanced nutrition and not knowing what is good quality of life, happiness, enjoyment, play and school means.
How can children think of going to school, when they know that the family barely manages two meals a day and won’t be able to pay for his school fees. The situation/saying “Right now the family has some debts to clear, hence school can wait another year” holds true for them.
Every child needs an opportunity to grow, develop and attain the place in life that the child deserves. The needs of children must be fulfilled today, for tomorrow may be too late. The sooner we recognize this, the better will we be able to work on it and create the best environments for our children.
But then, knowing all this, should we just sit back and accept the situation OR try to find a way out ?
YES! There is a way out -
small amount annually. Your contribution of Rs.3,500/- or USD 80 per year, per child, will go a big way in helping a family come out of poverty and ignorance and start life on a
new footing - a path towards achievement, fulfillment and future which are very distant for them as of now.
How Does Your Contribution Help---
1. From the monetary contribution that you will send, your sponsored child and siblings will be given their school uniforms, text and note books and other necessary things, at the beginning of the school term.
