Dorjee D. is a 6 years old girl from Sanghar village in the Eastern Himalayas (Mön Arunachal), the youngest child of an underprivileged family with nine children. Her parents are poor, and can hardly sustain their children. Dorjee occasionally goes to a local government school with very low level of resources and educational means. So her future would be to remain in poverty and under educated. The current exclusion rate of girls is very high in these areas, so educating properly girls is a priority for development.
Her father works in the fields and the mother takes care of the children and household chores. The financial situation of the family is very weak.
Her parents realize that they can not do more for her, and understand that joining the Tibetan Children’s Home (TCH) hostel and the Nehru Memorial school will be better for her and her family. She is willing to join as soon as possible. In TCH she will count with the support of her brother, already boarded there.
There is now an opportunity to board her in the TCH hostel and enroll her in the nearby well resourced school, helping her reach a better future and thus contributing to the development of the local society, closing also the gender gap.
You can be in direct contact with your sponsored child and monitor her progress in the education process.
