Meet Suk!

Child Sponsorship Program

Over the last few months we’ve been introducing you to the children, and you’ve already met Srijana and Ananda. Through the child sponsorship program, we’re inviting you to become a monthly donor of the home. You’ll be able to see first-hand what your donations are doing, and we’ll send you more pictures and info about each child so you can get to know them a little bit better.

Suk came to the home when he was 7 years old. Suk was a young child when his mother died, and not long afterwards his father abandoned him. Suk was being raised by his elderly grandparents, and when he arrived at the home he was dirty, malnourished, and covered in lice. His grandfather came to visit him a few times, but now he’s too old to make the trip.

Suk is a sweet boy, happy to play with the younger children, and eager to follow the example set by the older boys. He’s very smart, does well in school, and enjoys studying English. He loves playing soccer with the boys, and whenever his team wins a game, he wishes they could go back in time and replay the match so he could have the fun of winning all over again. Suk enjoys going on field trips and playing with his friends at school. He wants to study engineering when he’s older.

 Getting Involved

Ready to make a monthly commitment, and find out more about Suk? Consider becoming a monthly donor, and give Suk the bright future he deserves. Child sponsorship is a way to get involved not only with Suk, but the whole home. Through our updates, you can see just where your money is going. Your monthly donation will pay for Suk’s school fees, new clothes and books, and basic needs like food, doctor’s visits, and upkeep of the home. It will also help pay the salary of the cook and the tutor, people who are necessary to provide strong support for Suk and all the other children as well.

To be fully transparent with you about our ongoing expenses, we decided to set up a different kind of sponsorship plan than what is typical in charities these days. The total expenses for each child are around $200 – $250 a month. Instead of one sponsor, we’re looking for four to five donors per child, each willing to send $30 – $50 per month. Each child will have the benefit of not one, but five people investing in their lives. You can also consider co-sponsoring a child with a group of friends and family members. 

If you’d like to sponsor Suk, fill out a donation form here. Choose “monthly donation” and select “Nepal” from the drop-down menu. Choose a monthly amount between $30 and $50, depending on what works for you. In the comment section, note that you would like to co-sponsor Suk. You can make all the difference in the world for this little boy who has finally found a family and a safe home.
