Khushboo, who is 15 years old, has been a sponsored child since 2010. Before then, her family had no toilet and had to walk 10-15 minutes to go to the toilet in the open, which was an ordeal, especially during monsoons.
However the biggest transformation has been in her ability to pursue education. Khushboo achieved the 16th highest marks in her whole district, scoring 92% at the State Matric Exam in 2019.
Her success is a testament of her commitment, and the education programmes she has been able to attend over the years.
Khushboo has outgrown the dress she received from her sponsor but she still holds on to the letter and the postcard.
She says, “It was because of the help from my sponsor that I could study well. I thank World Vision for the changes in my life. I attend every World Vision programme and have got lots of encouragement. My family and I want to thank you for all the help.”
