tutoring support helps a young child stand up to bullies

Along with the daily struggles of living in poverty, 9-year-old Jhon Yoben has also been a victim of bullying, due to his inability to read. At home, his single mother, Nannette, works two low-paying jobs to provide for her family, and there’s nothing left over to spend on additional help Jhon Yoben needs. Things changed when he got tutoring support through Children International.

They laughed at me too. I understand. I understand, and that is part of the reason I sponsor fifteen CI children and youths.

I see bullying everyday since I work at a middle school... it is horrible no matter the reason.
I am glad he found his way to battle bullying.
