Albetinah is a very sweet natured girl who is naturally very bright. She passed her grade 7 exam (a big exam in Zambia) with very high scores! Albetinah is very dedicated to her school work. She will do what she can to find any extra assistance to help her do well. Her favorite classes are history, civics, and science. As one of six children in her family it is challenging to find school fees for all. Sponsoring her would be huge for her and her family, especially as school fees have gotten more expensive now that she's not in primary school. When she finishes school she would love to become a teacher.
Alex is a sweet young boy. His father is one of the night guards for Love's Door. He is an exceptionally hard worker, but he has a few sons that he is trying to send to school. Sponsoring Alex would help the family.
Christobel is such a sweet fun-loving girl. She loves to spend time playing with her friends, she’s goofy, and she will try to read any chance she gets. When we first met her she was 9 years old and was just learning how to write her name. Christobel lives with her mother, stepfather, and her baby sister. She has other siblings, but they live with relatives far away. Christobel is often responsible for many household chores such as washing, cooking, sweeping, or catching fish for the family to eat.
Chuma, otherwise known as Dodica or Sharon (her English name), is a loveable girl. She is very interested in school although her family hasn’t had the resources to keep her in school full time. She lives with her mother, grandmother, and step-grandfather. She has 4 siblings who are all out of the house and live fairly far away. Her 80+ year old step-grandfather makes charcoal and is the relief night guard for Loves Door, but the incomes he gets from these jobs aren’t enough to support the whole family and pay school fees for Chuma. Sponsoring her would not only change Chuma’s life, it would change the family’s lives by providing one bag of mealie meal a month for the family.
Denes is a very bright boy who works hard at school. He just finished grade 7 where he took one of Zambia's big examinations and passed with high marks. He stays with his uncle's family because both of his parents have passed away. The uncle's family has been trying to pay for school fees, but they are currently paying for 4 of their own children along with this orphaned boy. Since he passed grade 7, going on to grade 8 has increased the school fees making it very difficult for the family to pay for Denes. School is now a long distance from Denes' home, maybe a 2 hour walk one way, but he is determined and pushing hard every day to make school a priority. Please help Denes to get a good education and help the uncle's family by paying his school fees.
Dorcus stays with her mother and her father and 6 other siblings. Her father has a disease which causes him not to be able to work. Sponsoring Dorcus would allow her to go to school and it would assist the family as well.
Edward can come across as a quiet boy, but once you get to know him or you see him in his comfort zone, he can be playful, fun, and loud. Edward loves fishing, playing soccer with his friends, and building things such as cars out of anything he can find. He lives with his grandmother, aunt, and cousins. His grandmother makes baskets out of a certain type of plant found around here, but the income from the baskets isn’t enough to pay for Edward’s school fees.
Esther is super cute. Your heart can't help but melt when you see her smile. She's an active and gentle little girl who is a big helper at home. She lives with her grandmother and a few other siblings and cousins. She seems to enjoy school although it's difficult for the family to come up with the money for her and the other cousins that live in the house. Sponsoring her would allow her to go to school without worrying about where the money will come from.
George is a hard worker. He just wrote his grade 7 exam (a big examination year in Zambia) and he did very well. He stays with his aunt because his mother has a mental disability and is unable to care for him. The aunt's husband had taken a second wife because she was unable to have children. The husband recently passed away and all of their belongings went to the second wife because she has children, leaving the aunt with nothing. The aunt has some health issues that have caused her not to be able to hold a steady job. She does have a sewing machine and when work comes she does what she can, but it isn't enough to support her nephew whose school fees have increased because he is no longer in primary school. Please consider helping George continue his education.

Sponsoring her would give her a chance to go to school full time without the fear of being sent away.
