Vinothini lives with her mother and her sister in a one-room brick house in Pullambadi, India. She is in grade six at St. Ignatius High School and her best subject is Math. Her favourite activities are reading books and playing games with her friends. At home, she is responsible for helping with the cleaning chores. Vinothini would like to become a teacher someday. Her mother is a daily-wage labourer and cannot support all the needs of her daughters. At the Tamil Nadu Sponsor Site, sponsorship provides education, health care, and nutrition to families who come from tribal villages. Income generating programs are provided for the adults.
