World Vision's Lent Calendar
A young girl participates in a special day of training for crèche children (aged 3-6) in Soweto, South Africa. Children are taught how to get help if they are being abused by an adult. South Africa has one of the highest rates of child abuse in the world and this program, a partnership between World Vision and the government, is working on behalf of innocent children to do something about the situation."We tell the children if somebody asks you to do something you know is wrong, you don't have to keep quiet about it. You can report it to your mother, to your neighbour, to your aunt, to your sister, to people you are comfortable reporting it to," said Cece, one of the crèche teachers who brought children to the event.
Other reasons I sponsor a child are:
1. Rachel gets to have contact with a child a world away and learn about how different people's lives are.
2. Sponsorship makes a proven difference in kids' lives, through the support and education they receive.
3. It is something I can do that makes a difference, no matter how small, in a continent I adore.
