Samson is in grade five at the upper primary school in Dengili and his best subject is Odiya. His favourite activities are singing songs and playing cricket with his friends. At home, he is responsible for collecting firewood for his family. Samson would like to become a priest when he grows up. At the Berhampur Sponsor Site, sponsorship provides children with the educational, medical, and nutritional support they need to remain in school. Vocational training is offered as well, to help maintain an independent life in the future.
