The children below need a sponsor—someone like you

Alisha needs a sponsor

Their father is an alcoholic who has no interest in taking care of his family, he was very abusive towards his wife and children after indulging his addiction. For this reason, their mother ran away with another man when her daughters were young.

Lijo needs a sponsor

Lijo is 7 years old and he lives in Tamil Nadu, India. He was born on January 17th, 2013, and he is the 2nd grade. Lijo’s father was diagnosed with Schizophrenia soon after Lijo’s little brother, Vijo, was born. Their lives have been increasingly difficult since his diagnosis, as he is unwilling to take any medications and he often disappears for days on end. Lijo’s mother grew up in a World’s Children orphanage, and now she is requesting help from the orphanage because of these truly unfortunate circumstances. She wants her children to know the love of their father and she spends much of her time and resources attempting to help him. She desperately wants her children to receive an education so she brought Lijo to the orphanage. Lijo is a very cute and intelligent young boy. He loves dancing and reciting rhymes in his free time. He needs our help.

Clara is 11 years old and in the 7th grade. Her father has been unable to do any work since a road accident left him permanently disabled. Her mother tries to earn money to support Clara and her three sisters, but that is very difficult for a woman working daily manual labor jobs. Many nights the children were going to bed hungry, and she could not afford to send them to school. To have the opportunity for a brighter future, Clara and her sisters were sent to a home supported by World’s Children in Tamil Nadu, near the very southern tip of India. Clara is doing very well there. In school her favorite subject is math and she has shown a lot of improvement in science. Her hobbies include dancing, drawing, and playing chess. The administrator of the home describes Clara as active and very helpful, and says that Clara does everything she can to help the other children who are struggling with school work or who are sick.

Chinnari needs a sponsor.

Chinnari is an 11-year-old girl staying in a World’s Children supported home in the Hyderabad area of Telangana, India. She is one of three girls in her family. Her father is an alcoholic who deserted the family, probably because he only had girl children and saw no way to pay for three marriage dowries. Her mother earns very little selling flowers and was not able to pay for the daily needs of the children. She brought her children to stay in the home so that they could have health, safety, and a good education. Chinnari is doing very well there in 4th grade, and the home administrator describes her as very smart and clever. Her favorite subject in school is English and she also enjoys drawing and dancing.

Supritha needs a sponsor.

Supritha is 7 years old and in the 3rd grade. She lives in a home in Telangana that is supported by WC sponsors. Supritha and her younger sister came to the home after their father deserted the family, presumably because their mother was not giving him male children. Their mother is frequently sick and is weak and not able to do much work. She works sometimes as a cook at the home where the girls are living. The family does not have a house so all three of them are staying in this children’s home throughout the year. Supritha is described as very kind and affectionate and good in her academics. Her favorite subject in school is math. She also loves drawing and dancing.

Sponsor Pius

Pius’s father passed away in 2018 leaving Pius’s mother to care for two children on her own. They were living in a small, mud hut. She does not make enough money to keep food on the table, but she has a strong desire to educate her children, so she brought Pius and his brother to a World’s Children home in Bihar, India.
Pius enjoys learning math in the classroom, and playing soccer outside of the classroom. He is only five years old and enrolled in kindergarten. With the help of a sponsor, Pius will have a path to success and can break the cycle of poverty he was born into.

If you prefer, we are always delighted to work with you individually to match you with a child. We have many more children waiting for a sponsor.
