“I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.” Martin Luther King Jr.
We love hearing the dreams that our children hold in their hearts for their futures and we love walking beside them as their characters unfold. We feel blessed everyday that we have a hand in guiding who they will one day be and what they will do.
At the end of every term we send a specific child update to each of their sponsors and mentors. This update gives them a look into the everyday life of that child; the things they are struggling with, the things they are doing well at, home life, school life, prayer requests and also some general stuff like what they like and don’t like.
We love being able to send these out as it gives us the opportunity to reflect on that child. We also want the sponsors and mentors to feel as if they know the children who they are pouring into each month.
Each month we do our best to give each child what they need to get closer to their dream; extra lessons, private schooling, play therapy, dancing, spend hours playing sport with them, reading with them and chatting. Our dream would be to see theirs become reality.
Please keep the dreams of our children in your prayers this month.
If you would like to join our family of mentors and sponsors and invest more closely in the lives of one of our children or if you would like some more information on one of them we would love to hear from you!
