Theresia's Success Story
It seems like just the other day Theresia was a young child in our program. Today, she is a thriving professional, wife and a mother of a beautiful two-year-old daughter, Lishan. Earlier this month I visited Theresia at her insurance office in Kitengela, Kenya where she has been working for UAP Old Mutual Insurance since 2012 upon graduating with a Secretarial Diploma from Machakos University.
Theresia couldn’t be happier. In her quiet and confident manner, she recalls how difficult life was before her sponsorship. Theresia always held close the support and hope her sponsor Gary gave her as she succeeded in high school and college. She knows and believes in what she is doing.
Theresia’s success is also your success. It is a success story for everyone who has given funds to invest in child sponsorship. It is gratifying to see the impact of those who go on to complete college or start their own business. These strong alumni are breaking the poverty cycle for themselves along with their immediate family and their entire villages.
As we come to the close of 2017, I am urging you to consider a one-time donation to launch our Alumni Fund. From this fund, we will be able to support future “Theresias” and “Douglases.” This fund will give resources to those who qualify for University and help create business opportunities for others. Our goal by January 2018 is to raise $20,000.
