Comments on: Helping end violence in India by empowering women, girls Around the world Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:52:35 +0000 hourly 1 By: Anonymous Fri, 25 Jan 2013 01:01:29 +0000 I began sponsoring a child back in the early 1980’s, almost at the beginning of the program. He was an Ecuadorean boy who I supported until he turned 18 and joined the army. At that time I began to sponsor an Indian boy and that became one of the joyous occasions of my life. When he left the program several years ago, he had become a nurse and works today in an Indian hospital. His letter of thanks upon leavng the program was so heartfelt that I will treasure until my last day. My wife and I now sponsor two Indian boys and recently an 82 year old Dominican Republic man. I know everyone tends to want to support the young, but I am happy to be involved in helping someone at the end of life. We have so much and they so little. How can we say “no”? This is a wonderful program which keeps up in contact with our charges. We highly recommend it.
