More about Sravanthi
Sravanthi was born in India. Her sponsors began sponsoring her when she was 12 years old. Over the past decade they have enjoyed watching her grow up and complete her education. Without a doubt, their ten years of faithful sponsorship were instrumental in helping her beat the odds–a college education is extremely rare for a girl in India, and even more so for a girl in Sravanthi’s situation. Sravanthi comes from a very poor family. Her father is a farmer and her mother is a housewife. Quite often uneducated parents in India do not have a long-term vision for the future of their children and many parents take them out of school. Luckily, Sravanthi’s parents valued education even though they didn’t have the means to provide it. Not only did Sravanthi’s sponsors help her complete her bachelor of technology degree, but continued to help her until she completed her master’s degree in electrical engineering. Sravanthi is part of a new wave of young women in science and technology paving the way for future generations.
“Now I have learned a lot of knowledge about society, technology and relations and also I improved my communication skills from my graduation. So I am very much thankful to you.

Your loving child,

More about Ankitha
Ankitha comes from a very poor family in India who were struggling to make ends meet. Both of her parents are alive, but they are uneducated and struggle to survive. Ankitha’s father works hard as a manual laborer to care for his wife and children. Her mother suffers from chronic illness, so she is unable to work, and her treatment and medications are a financial burden on the already strapped family. We accepted Ankitha into the World’s Children Scholarship Program to help break her family’s cycle of poverty.
