Someone’s going to college…

Get this sickness:  There’s a girl in India who will find out shortly that her dream to attend nursing school and move back to the rural villages of India to care for the poor is coming true. She’s every social justice junkie’s poster child…

I took a phone call today from a woman who has sponsored one of our IGL children for nearly 8 years. In a recent letter she found out that her child has passed the entrance exam for nursing school, but would not enroll because she couldn’t afford the tuition ($50 a month). This sponsor called our office today…she asked us to email the India offices and tell them that this girl and the other three children she sponsors should be told that their higher education is paid for. Just like that.

 

My job’s cooler than your job.
