Tara was born into a poor family in India. Her parents were farmers stricken by drought. They brought Tara to the hostel when she was seven years old because they were struggling to raise their six children. They also valued the good education, care and love Tara would receive there.
A couple in the US has been supporting Tara for 14 years and this couple has been sponsoring children through World’s Children for 20 years. They currently sponsor four children. When they heard that Tara wanted to study nursing and midwifery, they agreed wholeheartedly to continue her support. Tara began her first year of nursing college in 2010 as a student of Auxilliary Nursing Midwifery. She completed the course and graduated in 2012. She is now well on her way to a bright and successful future.
In her last letter to her sponsor, Tara wrote: “…I have finished my training through your kind help. My family members are very grateful to you. Once again I am thanking you for your love and sacrificial support. Your loving daughter, Tara”
