October 17, 2019 Children

This little 6-year-old will begin 1st grade in early 2020.

Success’ mother became pregnant while she was in  her third year of high school and had to drop out. Her education was very low quality, and she has few skills.  Today, she works In a little restaurant for very little money.

Her father abandoned them and married another woman. The little money he earns goes to support his new family.

Right now, Success is near the bottom of her class, but there is a lot of time ahead of her. Sometimes kids with this kind of rough background never improve much, and sometimes it is as if a light bulb comes on when they are in 4th or 5th grade, and they begin to do significantly better.  There is no way to tell.

What we do know, is that without the support of a sponsor, Success and her mother have little hope.
