She's 13. Marriage or School?

Sad news arrived in our office today and made the impact of sponsorship really hit home.

I'll call her Sarah. She had just finished celebrating her 13th birthday and now she's planning a wedding. Sarah was in our system for two years waiting for someone to sponsor her. Now that's she's 13, and still has no sponsor, her parents have decided to withdraw her from school and send her to be married to a man in a neighbouring community.

I'm sure it was a difficult decision for her parents. This is probably the best way they can figure to provide for their daughter.

This will happen to another child today and then again tomorrow.

Thank you to those of you who sponsor kids; who partner with communities as they transform their futures. Your commitment is changing an entire generation. If you know of someone who could help us by sponsoring girls like Sarah, please share this story with them or send them to: www.fhcanada.org/sponsorship.

Our decisions do make a difference.
