Sonam T. II

Girl from village. SPONSORED

Sonam T. II is a 6-year-old girl, the second daughter of a single mother in a precarious situation with three children. She belongs to the Phomang village in the Eastern Himalayas. The mother can barely support her children. Sonam occasionally attends a local government school, with very low levels of educational resources and facilities. So her future would be to remain poor and uneducated. The current rate of exclusion of girls is very high in these areas.

The mother does some occasional work and takes care of the children, her older father and does housework. She realizes that she can not do more for her daughter, and understand that joining the Tibetan Children’s Home (TCH) and the Nehru Memorial school will be better for her. She is willing to join as soon as possible.

There is now an opportunity to board her in the TCH residence 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 and closing the gender gap.

You can be in direct contact with your sponsored child and monitor her progress in the education process.
