Sophia recently shared her sponsorship story with us as her community graduated from our support.
A lot has changed in a place where children didn’t previously have spaces to play, know their rights, go to school or work with other local families to overcome challenges. “[Now], we think more about each other and the development of the community,” explains Sophia, 19. “We’re free to defend our rights.”
Watch the video to learn more about Sophia’s past, present and future dreams — made possible by our supporters.
