Shraboni was a typical eight and a half year old in Char Borobila. That was, until she was sponsored by a Canadian through Food for the Hungry (FH).
Like most of the other families in Char Borobila, Shraboni's family experienced a lot of
|Shajahan helping his daughter feed her mother's cows.
With so many other pressing needs, Shraboni's school attendance was sporadic, at best.
But a number of things started to change when a family in Canada chose to sponsor her.

Sharmin shares, “FH transformed our family. Being involved with FH gives me a lot of benefits for my child and myself. I am now working hard to bring prosperity in my family.”
Perhaps the most significant investment Sharmin made was in Shajahan's tailoring business. She now works side-by-side with her husband in his shop, making a profit and supporting their children through their shared business.

Child sponsorship relieved Shraboni's father of the impossible financial burden of being the sole provider for his family. Child sponsorship catalyzed Shraboni's mother into a whole new way of living through gaining literacy, money management skills, property ownership, work outside the home, and true partnership with her husband. Their marriage has dramatically improved - they now make plans together about how to improve their family’s income and their children’s education. They intend to expand their business and bring more prosperity to their family. Child sponsorship was the catalyst for this family to transform their lives and become a shining example of hope to other families in their community still trapped in poverty.
And it was child sponsorship that got Shraboni back in school and made her home a place of peace, mutuality, and prosperity.
