Entered the program: November 2023

Joy is the only child in her family after her older sibling passed away. She lives with her mother and father in a four-room, plastered, sheetmetal house that is on loan to them temporarily from her grandparents. They have solar lighting and source water from a neighbor’s well. They have an outside kitchen that uses firewood for cooking and an outside
bathroom facility that is in poor condition and is shared among the extended family.

Joy’s parents are both casual laborers and do odd jobs when they can find them. Their income is unstable and minimal and it is difficult to supply all of the needs of the family, especially a home of their own.

Sponsorship Level What's this?

Three $38 sponsorships are needed to cover the complete holistic care of one child. Cover one, two, or three sponsorships.

Change the World for One

As a child sponsor, you’re providing things like nutritious meals, safe drinking water, education, health care, and spiritual instruction.
