Children thank sponsors for their support
Watch as kids from one of our India programs create a special gift to those who have helped them
By Brianne Binelli & Jessica Nguyen, digital content, Canada
Our sponsors make so much possible for so many children, so in this #FridayFlashback (before the pandemic) 40 of them gathered in a community centre in India to say thank you with a special piece of artwork.
“On behalf of our village, I’m thanking those who have supported us and helped us,” emphasized the young student from our India programs where we help more than 4,400 sponsored children in 160+ communities.
Across all our programs in 2020/2021, your support made the following possible…
- 395,000+ children and youth from 380+ fragile, vulnerable and marginalized groups were supported with better access to inclusive, quality education
- 200,000+ children, youth, parents and others across 380+ community groups were trained to defend child rights and prevent child abuse
- 52,000+ adults and children joined in reducing gender-discriminatory norms and practices
Thank you for all that you do!
