Lighthouse For The Blind
Nov 18, 2019. Me and my family decided to celebrate our son’s birthday with an institution titled Lighthouse For The Blind. It is an education centre for the visually challenged. These students are born to parents who are mostly daily wage earners struggling to survive in the slums of Calcutta and remote villages of West Bengal, as a result the guardians cannot bear the educational expenses for their sightless children. We try to support them in multiple ways, and today was a very satisfying experience, once again! And yes, they sang the Happy Bday song too 🙂

Our Sponsored Child #1
Education is every individual’s birth right. Hundreds and thousands of children in India are deprived of basic education due to poverty. We sponsor two children via World Vision India. One of our sponsored child is Revathi. We started sponsoring her from 2011 and as of 2019, it has been 8 years now. When we took her responsibility, she was probably in class two or three. She is now in class twelve. Recently Amit Bansal met Revathi in Tamil Nadu. It was a great moment for us. We met her at WVI project site. She was accompanied by her parents. Just a thought: if each one of us sponsor one child, we can ensure education for everyone.
Our Sponsored Child #2
And here is our second sponsored child, Hasanur, from Guwahati, Assam. He lives with his parents in an urban area. Both the parents are self-employed, but they earn so little, it is impossible for them to provide adequately for their family. We hope our sponsorship will now enhance the living conditions of the child and the community, and also ease the burden of the parents and bring joy and hope into the lives of these people.
