CHILD SPONSORSHIP is a wonderful way to bring hope for a brighter future to a child living
One area of sponsorship urgently needed by HEAL is within its Poverty Trap Project, which
involves supporting existing schools to provide more children from very underprivileged
backgrounds with an education.
HEAL believes that only through education can future generations avoid the cruel cycle of
poverty in India.
“There are currently very few of our Poverty Trap children being sponsored, particularly
in Bhadrachalam, so we are keen to find new sponsors as quickly as possible,” says HEAL
founder Dr Satya Prasad Koneru.
For just £11 per month you can sponsor a child at one of our Poverty Trap projects in
Guntur and Bhadrachalam, a very poor and remote rural area of Andhra Pradesh where most
children come from extremly impoverished families.
Your regular donation will help pay for school fees, uniforms, books, stationary, a midday
meal, and a contribution towards the teaching staff for children from families who could
not otherwise afford it.
There are currently more than 200 of the most needy children at Bhadrachalam requiring
this level of support from HEAL.
HEAL agreed to take Bhadrachalam under its wing two years ago and our child sponsors are
already seeing the difference their money is making after wonderful news of examination
success during the summer.
Head teacher Annapurna Devi contacted Dr Prasad to inform him that the school had received
a 100 per cent pass rate in the SSC examinations, overseen by the Board of Intermediate
Education – a genuine cause for celebration.
HEAL is proud to play a part in helping these children, who live in the most challenging
of circumstances, gain a good education, and therefore a chance in life, through its
Poverty Trap Project.
Sponsors can help by contributing as little as £11 a month by clicking on the ‘Sponsor a
Child’ button on our website home page at heal.co.uk.
