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.

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.

WHAT DOES CHILD SPONSORSHIP MEAN?

Support Image

Support

Sponsorship offers meaningful intervention that raises a child’s self-esteem and aspirations, creating lasting educational and economic opportunities that positively alter the outcome of a child’s life

Quality Education Image

Quality Education

Enhance the quality of education for children by covering school related expenses such as tuition fees, uniforms, shoes, textbooks, as well as afterschool tutoring support. Paying for these school supplies and resources reduces inequality in accessing education and empowers children when they attend school

Wellness Image

Wellness

Provide children with nutritional food to maintain mental, social, and emotional wellbeing. Ensuring healthy diets strengthens educational outcomes within the classroom and decreases absenteeism

Connection Image

Connection

Offer social support by creating a meaningful connection with your child. Learn about your child, their community, and educational goals to boost their confidence and drive. Children are also connected with a local network of supports to assist them through their journey, including staff, alumni, and other mentors.
