In Elizabethan England, a little boy was dressed in skirts, pretty much like his sister. When he was between 3 and 7, depending on his parents’ and nurse’s assessment, he got his first pair of breeches or breech hose.

This is an amazing story: Tania Akhter is a 19-year-old girl from Bangladesh. As a child, her family was poor and wanted her to start working instead of going to school. Luckily, she was sponsored by Good Neighbors’ Child Sponsorship Program and her sponsor continued supporting her schooling for the next 16 years. Tania went on to finish primary school and now she’s just started at a local university. Her dream? “To establish myself in society as a businesswoman. In the future, I want to help needy children [with their education] as I have been supported.”
We love Tania’s story because it shows that with a little support, any child can succeed. Did you know that you can sponsor a child for $35/month and that pays for their education, hot meals, school supplies, medical care, and more? Help change a child’s future for the better today.
