Hima's dad abandoned her and her mother when she was only 2 months old. Her mother at the time was only 16 years of age.
They live with the maternal grandparents in a small home that is occupied by 8 family members; mostly young mothers (siblings) that have also been abandoned by their husband/fathers. To help make ends meet the grandfather works 100's of kilometers away in a brick kiln factory in harsh conditions for very little wage. When he can, he sends money home, which isn't often. Hima's mother works locally as a builder's labourer and when she can get work, earns $4 a day. The family is financially extremely poor and without support can not provide Hima with an education.
We need a $36(AUD) per month sponsor. This will give Hima the gift of an education and also provide welfare support to her family during the year when needed. Click the link below to find out more
