Emmanuel Image

Emmanuel’s story

I live in Ghana, with my mother and four siblings. I was born to a teenage mother, and sadly, my father left us after my birth. We live in a one-room house - my mother cuts and sells firewood to try and provide for us, but she earns less than $1 a day. She is not able to provide for our needs without support. Your donation will make a world of difference to my family. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Emmanuel’s family and community.

Emmanuella ’s story

I live with my parents and three siblings in a caretaker house. This is a living arrangement where our family occupies a home that is under construction, for the purpose of protecting the property. This is a precarious living situation for us, but because it is the primary means of income, it is necessary. I am fortunate to still be attending school at this time, and love to study Science and English! My teachers describe me as a kind and playful girl. My family struggles to meet the costs of schooling. Your support will make all the difference now and in the future. Through child sponsorship, your investment in her life also helps Emmanuella ’s family and community.

I live in Liberia with my mom and 7 siblings. My father left us 6 years ago because he was very ill, and has since died from his illness. My goal is to be double promoted each school year and finish secondary school. I have been working very hard to achieve these goals by studying every day. My favorite subject is spelling and I am studying hard to do better in math. My mom never had the opportunity to attend high school, so she really values education for me and my siblings. Unfortunately, she cannot afford to fund all of our education on her own. With your help, I can stay in school and hopefully be able to achieve my dream of finishing secondary school.

Franklin’s story

I live in Liberia with my older sister who has done an amazing job taking care of me in place of my mom who left us over 7 years ago. My sister has impacted my life very positively, especially by encouraging me to go to school. In school, I have worked hard to achieve an 89% average. My favorite subject is English because I love to be creative and write stories. Unfortunately, even though my sister works hard to support us, we are unable to afford my education. As you can tell, I love school and I do not want to drop out. With your help, I can continue going to school and hopefully live a life out of poverty one day.

Zoryeah Image

Zoryeah’s story

I live in Liberia with my grandparent because, sadly, my father decided he did not want to care for me. I am currently in grade 5 and so happy to be a student. My favourite subject is math and I am so very proud to report that my teachers say I am highly innovative! I work very hard to do well in school and currently have a 90% average. Unfortunately, due to financial difficulties, I will have to drop out of school soon. With your kind support, I would be able to continue my studies and one day graduate to become a contributing member of the community. It would be thrilling to have my basic needs met and finally live a life beyond poverty. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Zoryeah’s family and community.

Zonnie’s story

I live in Liberia with my single mom. I was born prematurely and she has had to work very hard to keep me alive. Thanks to her, I am currently in the second grade and my favorite subject is Social Studies. My teachers say that I am an A student and often comment on my creativity. I would really like to continue going to school. Between education costs and my health conditions we are experiencing ongoing financial hardships. Unfortunately, even with my mom's hard work to support us, she will not be able to fund my education for much longer. With your generous support, I would have the opportunity to go to school and hopefully one day, I will live a life out of poverty. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Zonnie’s family and community.
