Former sponsored child in India now serving community

Congratulations to Muthu, one of our formerly sponsored children, who is now deputy collector of a district in India!

Muthu, former CFCA sponsored child in IndiaMuthu and his sister, Sheela, were both sponsored through CFCA in a rural Indian village with about 80 residents. They were the first in their family to complete their education.

Muthu finished high school, then a bachelor’s degree in math. Afterward, Muthu earned his master’s and took the Indian Civil Services exam.

He passed on his first try, a rare accomplishment especially for a first-generation student!

“A student of a remote rural village passing the IAS exam is a great achievement,” said Sarita Mendanha, CFCA project coordinator in Hyderabad. “As the exams are extremely tough and highly competitive, the student has to work very hard and needs to be highly motivated to pass. For a first-generation learner to pass it, hats off to Muthu.”

Now 28, Muthu has been appointed deputy collector of a district in Uttar Pradesh.

“We were overjoyed hearing this news that one of our CFCA children has become the deputy collector of a district,” Sarita said.
