I am the fifth of six children, and because my parents were not able to provide for me, I now live with my grandmother. My grandmother works irregularly as a petty trader, and does not earn enough to provide for all of my needs. We share a room in a house with no running water or sanitary facilities. Despite my meager surroundings, I do well in my English class and love going to school. I love to smile and play! I am at risk of having to leave school because my grandmother cannot provide for me.

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.

Florence ’s story

I live in Liberia with only one parent who never had the opportunity to complete high school. My goal is to live up to my name and "flourish" in life. As one of the only girls in my class, I am constantly competing with the boys to be the best student in the class. I believe that if Liberian girls are given an education and the support they need to thrive, we will be the champions of the development of our community and its togetherness. Unfortunately, even though my single parent works hard to provide for us, I will have to drop out of school soon due to financial difficulties. With your help, I could continue my studies and hopefully, one day, live a life out of poverty. Through child sponsorship, your investment in her life also helps Florence ’s family and community.

I live in Liberia with my foster family because my parents left me at a young age. Since starting school recently, I have been really enjoying it!

Going to school makes me really happy and I would like to continue my education, however, due to financial difficulty, I will have to drop out soon.

Titus Image

Titus’s story

I live in Liberia with my young mom because my father left us when I was born. Going to school makes me so happy! My teachers say I'm getting very good at recitation and I really enjoy playing with toys during our free time. I have learned that doctors make good salaries, so I have plans to become a doctor in my future! Unfortunately, with just my mom supporting the family, it is very difficult to fund my education. As a result, I may not be able to finish the school year. With your help, I could continue my studies and achieve my dreams of becoming a doctor! Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Titus’s family and community.

Elijah Image

Elijah’s story

I live in Liberia with a foster family because one of my parents passed away during the Ebola crisis in 2014, and another for an unknown reason. While I have only been going to school for 1 month, it has been so much fun! So far, I have learned the letters of the alphabet and can sing the whole song. Even my teachers are impressed! Unfortunately, I may not be able to stay in school for much longer because of the financial expenses for education. I really enjoy school, though and I want to keep learning. With your help, I could get the opportunity to continue my studies so that hopefully one day, I can live a life out of poverty. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Elijah’s family and community.

Franklin Image

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. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Franklin’s family and community.

I live in Liberia with my teenage father because my mom abandoned us. I am currently in nursery school and I really like it.

Diana’s story

I live in Liberia with my foster parents, who took responsibility for me when I was found by community dwellers in a carton at a garbage site. They work hard to support me, especially through my struggles with malaria and measles. I am really determined to change the narrative of my story of neglect to one where I have a successful future. I believe that going to school will help me achieve this. So far, my favorite subject is social studies! Unfortunately, I will have to drop out of school soon because it is too expensive for us to afford. With your help, I would be able to continue my studies and hopefully, one day, live a life out of poverty.

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.
