You can make a difference to the cycle of poverty just on our back door step! Sponsoring a child gives a brighter future by providing a school uniform, shoes, school bag with supplies as well as a hot lunch during the school day. Many of the children help their families by picking through mountains of trash for hours, sometimes making only a dollar a day. Parents have to make the difficult choice between sending their child to school and putting food on the table. This results in a lack of education and hundreds of children getting trapped in the cycle of poverty.
