School Sponsorship Renewals
July/August 2010- In May, we had the joy of spending a week at one of the schools where we sponsor a number of children for school attendance. The teachers are doing an incredible job of helping the children grow in self confidence, social skill, physical and mental stimulation, and many other areas of development. The kids were happy and interacted so well with us. We are now renewing the sponsorship of each one of them for another six months: Alli, Vicky, Chase, Samuel, Emily, Parker, Kaden, Beth, Dalton, Sammy, Steven, Matthew, Teddy and Sylvia.

April 2010- Hearing and seeing the tremendous value of school attendance on these special children, we are honored to renew their sponsorships for another 4 months. Thank you for your donations that make this possible for Samuel and Matthew, Steven, Beth and Sylvia, Rachael, and Sammy.
Specialized Schooling Renewal
March 2010- Alaina is in her third year of school sponsorship, and what a joy it is to watch her grow and develop. Alaina's sponsorship is unique in a couple ways. One, all of our school sponsored kids are much younger; and two, Alaina's sponsorship allows here the opportunity to attend a specialize school for the deaf. What a perfect match since Alaina has hearing loss. She works hard in her studies and has a talent for drawing. We are honored to help enrich her life and give Alaina the tools for a brighter future.
May update- Alaina excels in folk art skills, and now is working and studying to develop her classic art techniques.

February 2010- It is our pleasure to renew education sponsorships for Ben, Alice, James and Ellie to attend public school. James is in his fourth year of sponsorship, and Ellie in her third.
August UPDATE- Ben is a quiet boy in class, but music makes his active. He love singing. He learned about 40 Chinese characters the past term. Alice has learned Chinese characters as well, and she can write off of those she learned. She can do simple mathematics. James can recite the new poems he learned. He also did better on his final exams. Ellie loves writing and art very much. She received a special award at the end of kindergarten.
