Aleena S. has been waiting 584 days for a sponsor.
Hi, My name is Aleena. My family is very poor and we live in a rural village. My parents are day workers and struggle to support our family. I am handicapped and have 1 brother and 1 sister.
My mother brought me to Boys' and Girls' Towns of India so I could get an education and have a better life. I am in the 7th grade and my favorite subject is English.
My dream is to become a doctor and help the people in my community have better lives. In my free time I like to draw!
A Chance In Life
U.S. Federal EIN: 13-1835632
Since 1945, A Chance In Life has impacted the lives of over 32,000 at-risk youth. The work that began on the streets of post-World War II Rome has expanded in the last four years to Ethiopia, India, and most recently, to Latin America. A Chance In Life’s mission has been to help at-risk, disadvantaged, and disabled youth to become self-confident, creative, and responsible members of their own communities through an innovative approach called “Self-Government”. The self-government approach gives youth the opportunity to actively participate in the day to day running of their community and to have a voice in creating their own future.
Our programs provide boys and girls an opportunity to go to school and focus on their future. We prioritize family support and a healthy home environment, children are given a home, as well as access to workshops, homework assistance and sports. Our Organization is committed to allow boys and girls a chance to develop their emotional and social skills by focusing on their education and strengthening their academic performances, but most of all by allowing them to be joyful kids again.
A Chance In Life currently serves 2,500 children worldwide.
