Ivan's sponsor passed away. He is in his fourth year of secondary school at Bishop Comboni. He needs help to finish this very important step in his education. The completion of this year is the key to moving on to vocational training. He is a strong Math and Commerce student.
Ivan has had a difficult life - he has no father and is being raised by his mother who grows vegetables. He also has 5 siblings, so there is no money for education. He's charming, energetic and very funny.
Help him to reach his potential by sponsoring this year and considering vocational training for him. Support for Ivan will insure that he has choices about his future.
Please contact Jan or Jim to learn specific financial requirements for this unique situation.

Nicholas was first in his class on the government exam that he took recently. He is always the first or second ranking student in the class. This hard working boy is focused upon becoming a medical worker. He has the ability to study and create a situation for himself that would lift him out of poverty.
He is the youngest of 5 children supported by a night-watchman at a local lodge along with a mom who cares for the family at home. He has a supportive family that cannot afford secondary education. This is the harsh reality of life in the village.
Nicholas’ education will stop when he graduates from Primary in November of 2017 unless he finds a sponsor to take him to secondary school. The potential opportunity to go to Bishop Comboni secondary school is what motivates him. Please help him through this next level of education and open the door to his future.
Mercy is thirteen and has had the security of a sponsored education for a number of years. That changed recently when her sponsor ran into financial difficulties.
Mercy is in Secondary 2 at Bishop Comboni and a very dedicated student. She knows what life without an education means. She has three years of high school ahead. Vocational training would mean the world to her.
She has the emotional support of a mother who understands the value of an education. Her father does not. He has two wives and Mercy has three sisters and two brothers. Mercy’s mother takes care of all of them by selling bricks which can be made and sold two times each year. Life is very hard.
