Sponsoring Global Children

VIVIAN

In 2012, the Loop started sponsoring Vivian Wanjiku, an 11 year old girl living in Kenya.Although we cannot post pictures of Vivian online for her safety, you can the end of the an get to know her more by talking to your Loop coordinator. The picture on the left shows Vivian's community.

Vivian lives with her parents and 1 sister in Kenya. Her parents struggle to provide for the family. Vivian and her family live in a community severely affected by the HIV and AIDS crisis. In some communities, AIDS affects the entire social structure as a generation of hardworking adults is being wiped out. Frightened children and exhausted grandparents rarely have money for food, school, or medical care. Through sponsorship, we can help with these and other basic needs for Vivian and her family.

BIRAT

Later, in January 2017 the Loop started sponsoring a second child, Birat, a 4 years old boy who lives in Lowairpowa, India. Birat lives with his parents and has no brothers or sisters. His parents struggle to provide for the family. His father is a small buiness owner. Despite their efforts it is difficult to meet the family's needs. Birat is growing up in a poor community in India. A typical home is constructed using wood with a thatch roof and dirt floor. Rice is a staple of the local diet, and families may also eat vegetables, cereal and beans. Some communities are able to get meat, fish and prawns as well. Plains, hills and forests mark the land. Birat is not in school at this time. He likes to play ball games. We have learned that by sponsoring Birat, we will help provide Birat and his community with improved health through access to clean water and training in nutrition and hygiene.
