Asseta (above) is 14 years old. She a young teen living in Burkina Faso with her uncle's family. Her home does not have electricity or running water. When she is not in school, she helps in her family's peanut and millet fields.
Micheline (below) is also 14 years old. Micheline lives with her grandmother and she hasn't seen her parents since age four.
Both girls attend the same school my daughter, Therese, used to attend before we adopted her. Both girls need sponsors so that they can keep attending school.
Would you consider sponsoring one of these precious girls? Your sponsorship of $35 per month would provide basic food, clothing, medical care and educational needs. You will able to exchange letters with your sponsored child. This exchange will help your sponsored child to know that she is loved and valued and provide her with hope for her future.
If one of these girls touches your heart, please let me know and I'd be happy to send you more information. If you are interested in sponsoring a child in another part of the world, check out the Compassion International widget on the right side of my blog. Child sponsorships are vital to breaking the cycle of poverty. Be a part of it!
