Ciana is 8 years old and lives in Viello where Disciples Village is starting a school. She likes the color blue and spaghetti. Her favorite thing to learn is French.
For Ciana and thousands like her, going to school is a luxury her parents cannot afford. And without an education, her chances of breaking out of poverty are slim. Which means this eager, bright eyed girl will grow up, have children, and scrape to feed and clothe them just as her parents do her.
But there is a glorious opportunity to change the future for this child. For the modest amount of $30 a month, you can become a Child to School sponsor and give Ciana, or another child from her village, the chance to go to school!
We’ve seen first hand through our children at Alex’s House what sponsorship can do for a child. Not only do they gain the knowledge needed for future employment, they also gain a sense of dignity and confidence. They walk a little taller knowing their future has possibilities. A sharp contrast to the lives lived by generations in their family tree.
There is also something incredibly empowering for these children knowing someone is investing in them. Sponsorship communicates that they are not invisible or forgotten. They are loved and they have value!!
Along with Child to School sponsorship, we also need Daily Bread sponsors. Daily Bread sponsors give the same $30 monthly. This gift feeds the sponsored child each day they are in school. Learning on an empty belly is almost impossible. But with your gift, we can make sure children at the Viello school have food to eat as their little bodies and minds grow!
There is an imminent need for sponsors as we prepare for school to start on September 5. Please consider becoming a Child to School, Daily Bread or Total (Child to School and Daily Bread) sponsor and change the future for a child in Haiti.
