This was it: the moment Neoma had waited for. At long last, after years of hard work and determination, her dream was finally being realized. The young woman was finally preparing for a future in dentistry—a future made possible in part because of GFA World’s Child Sponsorship Program.
The Desire to Give Them a Better Life
Even when Neoma was a child, education was an important aspect of her life. She studied hard and shone in the classroom, which may have encouraged her parents to continue putting her through school. They did their best to ensure Neoma’s and her siblings’ needs were provided for—but it was difficult. As daily laborers, Neoma’s parents earned barely enough to put her and her siblings through school. They wanted their children to have something more, something better, than what they had.
To grasp that better tomorrow, though, Neoma and her siblings needed the appropriate education, which their parents could not afford. They needed help; without it, Neoma’s dream of obtaining higher education might not be realized.
Then, Neoma’s parents heard of a program that provided tutoring and care to children and assistance for families in need. And the best part? It was free.
Not long after that, Neoma was enrolled in the local GFA World Child Sponsorship Program.
