Can $7 Change Somebody's life?


Meet Peter.  He is 17 years old.  He lives in Mzuzu, Malawi.

Peter's dream is to "Change my life from Illiteracy to Literacy".  He wants to complete High School so he can achieve his ambition of becoming a Lawyer.

The bad news: Peter is living in poverty.  His family cannot afford to pay his school fees or purchase his compulsory uniform.

The good news: Peter is enrolled in United With Hope's Sponsorship Program.  For $7 a month we are paying for Peter to attend High School, so he can "be educated and be able to stand on my own".

There are many more students just like Peter who are waiting for a sponsor so they can pursue their education.  Sponsorship fees begin at $7 per month.  To view waiting children click here

So YES, $7 can change somebody's life.  And for us, we are changing Peter's life.  Welcome Peter to our family.

Monday's Mail

Today I received 2 letters from Ida, our correspondence child (young lady) in Indonesia.

One line stood out at me..

"I am full of joy.  I can't hide my feelings because I am so happy to read your letter"

Have you written to your sponsor child lately?  Letters make children feel loved and special.  It takes only minutes to write a short letter online, why not take time to do it now?
