A Little Girl Wants to be a Teacher

Beauty's Image

Five years ago, Beauty’s father was imprisoned and her mother passed away. She and her siblings live in Zambia with an aunt, who is also raising her own child, plus three children of another deceased relative in their crowded, little home.

Beauty’s aunt was abandoned by her husband, and she struggled to pay for the children’s schooling and provide enough food. One child was already sent home from school because of unpaid fees.

Today, support from our child sponsorship program  helps Beauty and the other children get enough food to meet their nutritional needs, and helps cover the cost of school and uniform fees, so the children are now back in school.

Beauty is thrilled to have shoes and new school uniform. She likes learning English, loves to read.

“I want to be a teacher when I am older.”

Give a child like Beauty a chance to dream.
