Ankit lives in tiny dwelling near a railway station with his parents and 4 siblings. He was often roaming the busy and bustling streetin Mumbai. He always wore dirty clothes while playing all day in the scorching heat. His language was crude and he had no interest in school. When he joined our partner's after-school program, he was restless and a troublemaker, but teachers were persistent in their pursuit to help him.
Ankit received tutoring, especially in math, and his interest in school slowly improved. He also started to care about personal hygiene, becoming successful, and respecting authority. He now displays a calm demeanor in the classroom and is helpful to his fellow classmates. He also takes his studies seriously. He wants to be a pilot when he grows up.
Your sponsorship will keep Ankit off of the streets, in school and engaged in an after-school program. It will also provide him with clean clothes, hygiene products, food and most of all, hope for a bright future.
*No photo to protect his identity - upon sponsorship you will receive photos and updates of Ankit.
