Rice Seeds Child Sponsorship Program 2012

The new school year started today. The kids in our sponsorship program were excitedly waiting for the school bus this morning along with all of the other children in the neighborhood. For most of the children in the neighborhood, this is just another school year, but for the children that we sponsor we know that every year that they are allowed to stay in school counts. Every year is a sacrifice for their families and we are thankful (as we know the kids are) for some of the parents who have begun to see the value in having their kids stay in school.

For 2 years now, we have had sponsors for the Burmese children in our sponsorship program and we are grateful for each and every sponsor. Over the past year however, we have begun to reach out to other children, both Thai children in our neighborhood and children in a Karen community about an hour away from where we live. These children also desperately need help to be able to stay in school, and we would love to find sponsors for them.

Would you consider sponsoring a child to stay in school? For only US$30 a month, you could help one of these children continue pursuing their education - we believe for some of them, it will be a helping hand towards a better future.Our hope is that some may grow up to be a helping hand to their own community - helping to stop the cycle of poverty.
