Sponsor A Child
It is often easy to take things like education, sufficient food and a safe place to sleep for granted. However, in so many parts of the world, especially for girls, these things are often still seen as luxuries. We believe that every child should be entitled to a proper education, and the chance to grow into their best self. Our child sponsorship programme links our girls with families across the world, who generously give a set amount each month and begin a correspondence with the children at Janani Home.
What is involved?
As well as exchanging letters with the girls, our supporters receive cards and letters every quarter providing them with fun and educational information about India. This means that they are learning as well as helping. We started the programme in 2018 and so far it has raised over £3,000. This sum has been invaluable in helping to cover the costs of keeping our home open and our girls in school and healthy. Thanks to recent changes, the Indian government now offers free and subsidised education, but some families still struggle to prioritise school for their daughters. Our sponsors are helping us to maintain a stable infrastructure from which our girls can learn, grow and we hope, realise their potential. We ask for a minimum of £10 or equivalent per month, which goes a long way towards providing one of our girls with the support they will need to reach for the stars.
