She deserves a better life.  On this particular  early morning, there are ten North American adults roaming her small piece of land and what she calls home.  With our DSLR’s we are photographing her and everything around her.    From the hen and chicken running like crazy to the open burning fire used to heat the porridge.  For us, used to our lifestyle, this garden hose coming through the air and being connected to an outside kitchen sink with a single handle water faucet is quiet foreign.

She is looking at us and does not really understand our interest in her daily routine.  When she grows older she might be part of the Camera Club of Empowerment International and she might do as we do now.  She might be documenting the daily life of others to support the media that we feed on every day of our life in our richer country.  While there are so few positive options offered to her at this young age,   I believe that EI support will be playing an important role in her future.

How about helping with less than a morning coffee?

For 1$ a day, Empowerment International will get a child like her in the program.  EI will meet with the student  and teacher on a regular basis to monitor his or her progress.  After each meeting EI will meet with the parents to report on the progress and will recommend corrective action as needed. EI also helps facilitate solutions to barriers that arise which would typically cause a child to drop out of school.

So can you sponsor a child  like her for 1$ a day? This is less than a cup of coffee.

You can also  buy this Calendar.  For each Calendar sold 10$ will go to EI to help these kids.

Or you can buy a print of one of these kids.  Again, all the proceeds will go to EI.

The ultimate way to help though is sponsoring a child.  When you make a commitment,  you will receive regular report on the progress of the child you are sponsoring and will have the satisfaction of giving this child the opportunities that  associated with education.

Wouldn’t you like to see your protégé show such determination and character in a few years from now?
