Why Sponsor: A Heartfelt Testimonial from one of our Child Sponsors

There's a certain kind of love that exists in the hearts of people who truly care about the lives of others. There's a certain kind of hope that some people have who believe that one person CAN make a difference, and many people working together can make a much bigger difference. There's a certain kind of peace that warms the heart knowing that someone's LIFE has been changed simply because you care...for giving up such little things in their lives in order to sponsor a child.

What is $30 to a family in the United States? A trip to the movies. A dinner at a chain restaurant. 1/10 of the cost of the newest gaming system. A weekly stop at Starbucks for a $6 cup of coffee.
What could $30 do in Africa? Buy school uniforms for children who can attend school because the buildings were finally built for them. Food for a family who can make it last a month instead of one meal.
In addition to material things, $30 can buy hope. Hope for a brighter future. Hope for education. Hope for a life with a little less worry in the back of their minds. Hope for change. Hope for their families. Hope for their community. Hope inside their hearts.
To me, the knowledge that I am helping to give hope to someone who truly appreciates it and makes an impact in their daily life, is WELL worth giving up that trip to the movies, that dinner out, and that weekly coffee treat. We take for granted so much every day in the United States. There are children in Africa and other parts of the world who aren't begging their parents for the latest and greatest toy. They are simply waiting for food, without begging, knowing that their parents are doing all they can for them. They appreciate a roof over their heads and enough to eat, even if it's only once a day. And I can guarantee they aren't arguing with their parents to eat their vegetables.  :)
My first letter from Rosaline was precious. I'm looking forward to getting to know her and developing a relationship with her. She is one of MANY children who has a grasp of appreciation for what she has much more so than adults in the United States. The pictures I have received of her and her father and twin sister are just priceless. Her smile has captured my heart.
If you would like to feel the joy that I have felt in sponsoring Rosaline, please consider discussing child sponsorship with the wonderful people at Develop Africa. You CAN make a difference. Give hope to a child. Hope is priceless and so is the peace you will feel in becoming a part of sponsorship and this organization.
