Sponsored children in India now have a future

India (MNN) — Worldwide
Christian Schools
says roughly a dollar a day can change a life for the better
in India.

Globally, 72 million school-aged children do not
have access to education. Lack of education is often a sentence to a life of
hardship and poverty.

WWCS launched Student Hope in
India and hopes to include other
countries around the globe in the soon.

What difference does $32
make? For 11-year old Biswajiti
Bidika, it's the difference between life and death. Biswajiti is a
student of New Life Academy in northern India. 

Her father, a day laborer, is
unable to care for her and placed her in the care of New Life Orphanage. There
she receives good meals, loving attention, and the ability to attend New Life
Academy.  A student in the 4th grade, she learns of her potential and
expresses a desire to become a nurse.

She is awaiting a Student Hope
sponsor so she can continue her education. A sponsorship makes it possible
for more children to receive a quality, Christ-centered education in areas
where typically no other educational options exist. It covers tuition,
including school operational costs, textbooks, uniforms, and school lunch.
