She was raised in a Buddhist home before coming to live at the Children’s Home.  Lekha now receives three meals a day and is anxiously awaiting a sponsor family!

Monika has an older brother and sister who brought her to the home so she would receive a better life. She is currently studying with the Kindergarten class and enjoys learning. Monika is very friendly, enjoys playing games, and is in good health. A sponsor family for Monika would mean everything to her! 

Bishojit Debnath was born on February 17, 2000. He may seem old to many, and he is! Bishojit is currently in 11th grand and studying in our Joy Hostel program. He only has a year or so left with us but has been waiting for a sponsor family since he arrived in March of 2003. He was just three years old when he first came to the home, his relatives brought him to us because his family suffers from extreme poverty. Bishojit has received his high school education and is now working on a college degree!

There is no doubt his time with us has broken the chains of generational poverty his family has suffered from for years. He comes from a Hindu background but has since accepted the Lord as his Savior and found great freedom.  Again, sponsorship for Bishojit may be short lived, but could begin a relationship that would change his life (and maybe yours)!
