Lian and Lunnu Thang, our leaders at Shalem Christian Academy, know what it means to grow up in deep poverty. Lian shares:
"I used to walk to school without shoes in the winter and without an umbrella in the summer under the scorching sun. Many days we would go to school and our teachers would never come, so we would sit by ourselves all day long. I was so hungry I felt the urge to snatch food away from my friends, and on several occasions, I did."
These dire circumstances for children living in deep poverty in Myanmar have not changed. But with your help, the children of SCA will break free from the cycle of poverty and have a bright future.
HOW MUCH DOES A SPONSORSHIP COST?
For just $40 a month or $480 a year, you can change a child's life!
Our sponsorship program is up and running, helping children get the education they need for a better future. And then, once our facilities are complete, we will offer room and board to the neediest children. Because of the large expense of room and board, each child may be sponsored up to four times.
HOW DOES MY SPONSORSHIP HELP?
Your sponsorship provides your child with a quality education, a nutritious lunch, medical check-ups and the love and attention of our staff. Most importantly your child will hear of the one true God and the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Sponsorship gifts will be pooled to buy food, uniforms, and school books for our kids, pay teachers' salaries, and cover all the costs associated with keeping the school doors open. By pooling gifts, we ensure funds are used to give each child, sponsored or not, the chance for a better future.
WILL I RECEIVE UPDATES?
Twice a year you will receive a personal update about your child, which will include either a new photo, note, or drawing. You will also receive periodic updates from Lian and Lunnu Thang, our SCA project leaders.
