Why the Sponsorship Programme?
The Sponsorship Programme allows you effectively to help a child in need. You can help these children to get out of poverty and give them the most valuable asset: education.
Engaging in a Sponsorship Programme means to guaranteed access to primary and secondary education (up to the tenth grade) for all those children who enter the programme.
Who are the beneficiaries?
Most of the children of the Sponsorship Programme belong to the caste of the untouchables and live in the slums of Vijayawada, in huts made of palm leaves or metal sheet, if they are lucky. Their houses have only one room, which serves as kitchen, bedroom and living room for the whole family. Children eat rice mostly and sleep on the floor on mats, along with all the other family members. They are often forced to work as garbage collectors or brick builder; girls have to stay at home and help with the chores, if they are not sold as brides.
Thanks to you, these children attend Care & Share schools in the slums from nursery up to the twelfth grade. If they want, they continue their studies and go to university or choose a professional course.
