Susmita lives with her parents, her brother and sister, in a small mud house with a thatched roof, in Odisha, India. She is in grade four at Mahuduma Upper Primary School and her best subject is Odia. Her favourite activities are singing songs and playing games with her friends. Susmita's parents are daily wage labourers, struggling to provide the basic needs of their family. Susmita would like to become a nurse someday. At the Orissa Sponsor Site, sponsorship lessens the financial stress for families so that children can receive educational support, proper nutrition, and medical care, allowing them to stay in school and get a good education instead of dropping out of school to help support their families.
If paying by credit card online please write down the child’s ID number. Thank you!

A SPECIAL NOTE TO SPONSORS FROM THE USA. We will send you a receipt for income tax purposes following the end of each calendar year. Chalice is not a registered charity in the USA, but Canada and the USA do have a tax treaty which allows a tax deduction under certain conditions. Basically, a resident of the USA may be eligible to claim a deduction against taxable income received from Canada. Please consult a qualified financial advisor to review your own personal situation. You can still sponsor if you don't require an official income tax receipt. We have many sponsors from the USA and we send them our heartfelt thank you.
