Priya lives with her parents, her brother and sister, in a two-room brick hut that has mud floors and a concrete roof, in Jessore, Bangladesh. Priya is in grade 10 at Bagoan High School and her best subject is Bengali. Her favourite activities are gardening and playing ball games. At home, she helps with all the household chores. Priya wants to be able to continue her education, because she would like to become a nurse someday. 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.
