Children growing up in poverty face many tough challenges. Little or no access to basic necessities like clean water, a safe and sturdy home and a good education are just a few. The circumstances can change based on factors like culture, location and the economic environment of the country.
Without having visited one of these countries firsthand, it can be tough to envision the world a child in poverty lives in. As a sponsor, you have the life-changing opportunity to visit your child and see the impact you’re making. Sponsors that are able to visit always return with a better understanding of their child’s world and often, a changed perspective of their own lives.
If you’re unable to visit, hopefully this information will help create a better picture of your child’s life for you.
