After skipping school to hang out with his friends much of the day, teenager Rondale made his way home. He likely knew his parents were disappointed in him. They had told him several times to become a good person, but what did they know?
Rondale’s parents weren’t even educated. His father worked without needing an education, so why were they so insistent that Rondale get one? Deep down, all he wanted to do was help his father farm and stay with his parents, and he didn’t need an education to do that. Why did they keep insisting that he was being disobedient by not studying? If he did well in school, he would likely have to move far away from them to continue his education and get a better job rather than being close to them. Did they want that?
Upon coming home, Rondale probably saw his younger sister, Meelia, diligently doing her homework. Her parents had enrolled her in GFA World’s Child Sponsorship Program . The program had given her hygiene supplies, nutritious meals, proper clothes and other essentials. She had flourished with the help of the program, got key academic support, but also learned moral lessons, and she conducted herself well in life. Their parents were grateful for the program and likely very proud of their daughter. But didn’t Meelia know what the future held?
