15 years old Alemyanger is studying in Class VII in Dimapur, Nagaland. Two years back his dad severely injured both his legs in two consecutive accidents thus, it has been the responsibility of the mother to take care of the family financially. She supports the family by selling vegetables in the local bazaar. A normal day for her starts at around 4:30 am and the rest of the day is spent in the bazaar selling vegetables with a small profit. Since their mother is away the whole day Alemyanger and his elder sister Sentinaro are mostly left on their own to manage the housework as well as their studies.

The mother’s meager earnings are hardly enough to support them and to make ends meet leaving her no option but to borrow money at the end of most months to pay the children’s school fees. Despite this domestic hardship Alemyanger has been doing well in his studies all on his own. When most kids his age rely on tutors outside of school he has been able to get good grades through his own hard work and dedication. He is a bright kid who is keen on his studies and very disciplined and friendly in nature.

Alemyanger is the first child that Help Live is sponsoring in India and we would like to offer our gratitude to all our partners for making this possible.
