Meet Sandesh – Our Sponsor Child
That’s right – Future Grafix has our very own sponsor child!
When a child’s most basic needs are met, they have the best opportunity for success. By providing them with access to clean water, healthy food and education, opportunity is unlocked and children become empowered to take charge of their lives. We believe this is the right of every child, so in 2018 we made the decision to support a sponsor child.
Sandesh and his family are the victims of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. They lost their house and cowshed. His father died a few years earlier while having medical treatment in Hospital. The family lives in a temporary shed made up of tin, bamboo, wood and mud. Sandesh’s mum works as a maid for 2 different households to support him and his 2 sisters.
He loves playing football and he helps fetch water and do other chores around the house. His favourite subjects at school are Science and Social Studies.
When selecting an organisation to go through for child sponsorship, it was important to us to select an organisation that saw 100% of the sponsored money go directly to the need. So many of the organisations that are household names take a percentage of the donated money to cover overheads. International Needs is a volunteer-run organization doing amazing work all over the world. The child sponsorship programme ensures that all money donated goes towards the needs of the sponsor child.
