A Host of Programs for Kids in Need

Our volunteer coordinator, Alicia, at Morgan County High School, makes sure children have activities to keep them busy and learning

Morgan County is located in the northeastern part of Kentucky amongst a terrain of rolling hillsides, with no true mountains. The Licking River, the main waterway in the county, runs through its eponymous valley, which houses the county seat, West Liberty. It is truly beautiful county, although not an area of our country without its problems. Morgan County was never a very active coal mining area, although it was — and continues to be — […]

Helping Parents Become Teachers

A letter from our volunteer coordinator at the Father Andeweg Institute for the Deaf in Lebanon

A Note to Remember

The principal of the Tohaali’ Community School holds on to a special letter from a sponsored child’s parent for many years

The remote town of Newcomb is situated on the Navajo Indian Reservation, amid the incredible desert beauty of northwestern New Mexico. The Reservation comprises more than 27,000 square miles of spectacular but inhospitable countryside, extending into both Utah and Arizona. Despite its massive scale and rich cultural history, residents of the Reservation are desperately poor. Newcomb is no exception. A trading post (which includes an impressive Navajo artifact museum) and a fish hatchery offer the […]
