Sponsor A Child - Dharmapuri, Year 2012 - 13

Dharmapuri, Vizianagaram District, AP
Located at Zilla Parishad High School, Dharmapuri village, Vizianagaram District, Andhra Pradesh, India, this project serves the children in around the villages of Dharmapuri, Biyyalapeta, Chinthalavalasa, Gayatrinagar and Botchapeta under a Sponsor-A-Child program. All 10 children sponsored in this project under Sponsor-A-Child program are semi-orphans. All of these children are at the brink of discontinuing their studies due to their deprived condition before Bighelp sponsor their education. The full details of each sponsoring child are provided below. Additional children will be sponsored in this project as we continue to find the eligible children.

This is our first project in the district of Vizianagaram and is the 26th active project for Bighelp in the state of Andhra Pradesh under Sponsor-A-Child program. This project helps the orphans and underprivileged children to continue their studies with the support of their sponsoring donors. In addition to getting financial assistance to pay the school fees, buy books, cloths, shoes, educational material and private tuition, in this program children are benefited from more individual attention by our project directors and project committee (group of Bighelp volunteers) that has been established in this village. These students will continue to get the sponsorship from Bighelp until they complete their 12th grade as long as they continue to perform well and meet the eligibility criteria. .

There are many children in and around the village of Dharmapuri who have no option but abandon their schooling and go to work to support their family. The situation is even worse if the child does not have parents and earn their bread themselves. For all children sponsored under this project, it was almost everyday struggle for their existence and continuing their education was distant dream. Bighelp was able to form a project committee with the support of school headmaster, teachers, and villagers to help these underprivileged children and hope to give them a gift of bright future with the help of the sponsoring donors.
