Navami Krishna

High School Student & World Vision India Child Sponsor

I was inspired by the story of Malala who stood to fight for the girl's right for education. Being a fortunate girl child living in Abu Dhabi with my parents I thought of what difference I could make for these little friends. We heard about the child sponsorship program of World Vision India and decided to sponsor a girl child to support her to aim high and to make her dream come true.
