She is in grade three at St. Joseph's Primary School and her best subject is Bengali. Her favourite activities are gardening and playing ball games. At home, she helps her mother with the household chores. At the Jessore Sponsor Site, sponsorship helps families become more resilient to the conditions of a very unstable national economy. The site provides educational support and health care so that children can build a better future for themselves.
