Sponsor a Child

World Vision is looking for sponsors of children like 13 year old Kanini. Kanini is the soul supporter of himself and his ailing grandmother who is well into her eighties. Kanini’s parents are dead and he worries about the well being of his grandmother. Each day Kanin herds cattle in exchange for small amounts of porridge. He shares his ration with his grandmother. She worries about him.

“Even if I go for many days without food,” Kanini’s grandmother says, “it is alright, as long as my grandchild tells me that he ate something.”

Rose, their neighbor, offers to share what she has with them but often there is little for her to share. Rose is a widow with 10 children to feed. People used to freely share their food, but the raising food cost makes it hard to neighbors to continue to do that.

Rose says,

“The hunger situation here is dividing us . . . Very few people will harvest enough this year.”

Kanini dreams of attending school to be able to take care of his grandmother. He says,

“I do not go to school,  because there is no one to sponsor me.”

For about $1 a day, you can help a child like Kanini to have the most basic necessities-like food, education, clean water, and health care.
