SPONSOR A CHILD
How it started
Soon after IIMC began, they realised most people coming to their clinics couldn’t read the prescription and didn’t know how to get and stay healthy. Their lack of literacy, education and financial income meant medical problems were ongoing and hard to treat.
It was clear that people needed at least primary education and this is how it started with ten sponsored children in 1993.
After the first year, the results were very encouraging. All the children were healthy, clean and thriving.
So health care and education ultimately changed the whole family’s situation and health. We now believe it is education, first and foremost, that will bring health improvement to the people of West Bengal.
Every Sunday from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
A small monthly contribution enables sponsors to give a child access to education and health care reducing their chances of illiteracy, poor health and poverty. The program is successfully changing the lives of children and their families and we are proud to support such an important initiative.
