Collins was once sponsored individually, but through our Family Care approach we’ve now been able to assist not just him, but his entire family of seven people. The family now has several sources of income and all the children are progressing well in school while enjoying a better life at home.
Originally we only sponsored the youngest girl from this family, a sixth grader named Sareen. But after shifting to Family Care we are now assisting the whole family as they rise out of poverty. It’s a success story because the family now has several income-generating ventures to support themselves. They have also dug a water well and they’re part-way through building a new latrine. Perhaps most importantly, they now have a strong and realistic belief that all the children will get the education they deserve and be able to create the kinds of adult lives they wish to lead.
