​Sponsors and Children
The education that sponsorship provides changes the life prospects of these Sikkimese children, as you can read below in their own words. Our sponsors equally  find great reward in giving their support. Most are individuals but some are companies. See below for some of their comments about their experiences. We also have many photographs since 2003, a sample of which are in our Photo Gallery. If you move right in the gallery this will go from 2003 until the present day. If you move left you will start with the most recent.
