World Vision - Update

We are delighted to announce, that we have become the proud sponsors of a 4 year old girl - Kashish Kumari and a 10 year old boy - Musaraf Md, via the World Vision child sponsorship, which we recently subscribed to.

Both our children come from the same sponsorship project in Patna, which is one of the poorest and most neglected states of India.  In the initial phase of this Area Development Programme, World Vision will be focusing on early childhood development.  With the co-operation of communities and the local authorities, it aims to satisfy the nutritional, health and educational needs of young children living in the slums.  The plan is to help the communities to set their own goals and work towards them, with the long-term view of doing this without World Vision, who expect to remain in this community until 2021.

We are sending our first letters to Kashish and Musaraf this week, to introduce ourselves to them and to find out more about their lives.  We are looking forward to seeing how they grow and develop over the years, with the help that our sponsorship and the support of World Vision will give them.
