Together, We’re Feeding the Hungry

Since last year, Kenya has been suffering from a disastrous drought, which has killed much livestock and caused widespread crop failure, creating food shortages throughout the country. As a result, the cost of grain has increased tremendously. 2.7 million people have been affected, including our sponsored children at the Materi Girls’ School. Thanks to our Hope In Action Fund and our wonderful donors, however, we were able to send funds to the school for the […]

Students in New Orleans Love Their Sponsors

Students at Schaumburg Elementary School in New Orleans, including Desiree*, love their sponsors. Desiree has a wonderful sponsor who sends her letters, pictures, and postcards from her travels that open her eyes to the world outside of her neighborhood. At the beginning of each school year, Desiree’s sponsor makes her a picture book so that she can see and learn about new places.

A Promise for the New Year

Our CEO, Ron Carter, strives to do more for children in 2018

I’ve never believed in New Year’s resolutions; far too often, those things that we set out to do at the start of January fade and vanish within a couple of weeks, if they even last that long. Instead of making unrealistic and often unsustainable goals for myself, I prefer to look at the facts: what I accomplished in the past year, what I may have missed along the way, and how I might do better […]

A Special Gift for the Holidays

An interview with sponsor Bill Hafker

When we think about Christmas, we often think about giving the perfect gifts to family and friends. Gift giving comes in all forms – whether it is buying a loved one a sweater, writing a poem for them, or making them dinner – it is a meaningful way to show others that you care. For sponsors Bill and Ilene Hafker, their idea of gift giving is to help children in need, involving their friends in […]
