That’s why sponsorship matters so much to me! When you sponsor a child through World Vision, you're not only personally showing God’s love to a child in need, you’re also investing in a proven way to help that child and their community stand tall, free from poverty.
Here's my story...
I first started sponsoring when I was 12 years old. I started giving my allowance back to my mom because I wanted to "help somebody in need." I chose to sponsor a little 4 year old girl named Vanesa from El Salvador. Little did I know that this decision would lead to my life changing in the best way. Over the years, my relationship with Vanesa has grown to an immensely powerful friendship. I have been blessed with the opportunity to visit her in El Salvador on 3 separate occasions, where I have witnessed firsthand the power that sponsorship has on a community. Because of sponsorship, Vanesa and her family now have access to clean water, better schools, and protection against violence. Vanesa is now 14 years old. I am honored to call her my friend, and I am honored to have played a part in changing her life, as she has certainly changed mine.
Hope For Honduras
Today, we also have an incredible opportunity happening right now in Honduras. For every child sponsored in Honduras this month, a very generous donor has agreed to match $250 of funds to provide clean water to five (5) children and family members in need. If you sponsor today, you can make an incredible impact in the life of a child through World Vision's child sponsorship ministry and also help communities receive the blessings of safe and sustainable clean water in Honduras.
