HN 26 | A Child, A Community, and You



Child Sponsorship doesn’t just transform the life of a single child— it changes the whole community. By developing leaders, training teachers, and equipping farmers, the resources from your sponsorship have a wide-reaching impact.

Take Phanny, for example. Once a family started sponsoring her, everything changed - for Phanny, for her family, and even for her neighbours. 

Her sponsor’s generous support meant Phanny could attend school. It also helped fund the life-saving health workshops her parents attended. It allowed them to join a savings group where they could work with their neighbours to save and plan for their future, together. 

These positive changes are creating a healthy community and a healthy family where Phanny will also grow and thrive! 

FROM STUCK 

“Before I was very shy and seldom talked. I was shy because my family was poor. I love playing with other children but I only had a few friends. I did not feel important. 

“Our home was always not in order. We did not clean our surroundings; we threw our trash everywhere. 
“I remember that my sister and myself always got sick. I had stomach aches and fevers.” 



"Our community became better. Many things changed. Even the way we value education for our children, how we take care of our surroundings, and our relationship inside our home and in our community." -Leann, Phanny's mother.

TO THRIVING

“We now practice the things that we learned, such as drinking only safe water. They [FH] taught us to boil the water first or filter it before we drink because sometimes germs live in the water. 

“We pick up trash from the roads, and we write signs [instructing others] that they should not throw their trash anywhere either. We also planted trees in our backyard. 

“I am now more friendly and brave. I share my ideas with my friends. 

“I would like my community to continue to support their children, like what my parents are doing for me and my younger sister. My dream is to finish my 12th grade and pass the National Exam. Then, I will tell my parents that I can’t wait to go to university!”
