Hello, my name is Mailes. Child Sponsorship through African Vision of Hope would really change my life.
I live in village of Kapuka and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Chongwe, Zambia. I am a 6 year old girl in grade 2. My birthday is July 3rd. My favorite subject in school is studying Mathematics and I enjoy Netball. I would really love to have you as my sponsor, your encouragement through letters and prayers would help me very much. Child sponsorship is a way to make a lasting difference in Mailes’s life.Your $30 per month will help provide her with:
- Education opportunities
- Life skills training
- Clean water and nutritious meals
- Basic medical care
- The opportunity to hear and learn about Jesus Christ
As Mailes’s Sponsor
You will receive a yearly updated photo of Mailes along with letters 1 -2 times a year. You will also receive a welcome kit to fill out about yourself so it can be given to Mailes. This will help her get to know you and your family. A teacher or staff person will assist children who have yet to learn how to read and write.At home Mailes’s duties include many household chores such as sweeeping, washing, and fetching water. She also has responsibilities in caring for her younger siblings and “extended” family. Mailes really enjoys learning about Mathematics in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Netball.
Daily life for Mailes and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Kapuka, her home, are not able to afford to go to public school and survive on a single small meal per day. This meal is primarily made of nshima – a staple that is made of ground corn flour boiled in water.
By being in school at African Vision of Hope Chongwe, Mailes is not only having her mind “fed”, but she is benefiting from a nutritious meal each day she is in school. The majority of these children live with a single parent or relative. Others have been forced to live with whomever will take them in, and being forced to the streets by the age of 6 is not uncommon.
Mailes and her friends not only have physical poverty but they a poverty that can’t be seen. They have lost hope and do not believe that their life matters or that they matter. This is why Child Sponsorship through African Vision of Hope is making a difference.African Vision of Hope takes the message of John 21:15 – 17 and puts it into action.
- “Feed my lambs” – We take that literally and ensure a daily nutritious meal to each student.
