Yesu Dasu is a young boy in India. He comes from a Christian family and his parents are illiterate. They did not have an opportunity for school due to their poverty, and want more for their son. Although they work very hard as daily wage laborers, their income is not enough to provide for the family. Many times they lack nutritious food and basic necessities. As Yesu’s sponsor you are giving him the opportunity to attend the childcare center where he will receive nutritious meals, medical care, and a good education. Most importantly he will experience and know Christ’s love for him.
