👋🏼 Meet Alford

How it Started - Meet Alford. Alford has called The Raining Season home for nearly ten years. Alford was born on April 25, 2010. Alford and his sister, Josephine, came to The Raining Season when he was just two and a half years old. His father passed away in 2011, leaving his mother to care for him and his five siblings. Because it was so difficult for her mother to care for the children alone, she asked that several of her children be brought to The Raining Season for a better life.




How it’s Going - Today, Alford is 12 years old. As you can see in the pictures, Alford has grown from a toddler to a preteen in the ten years he has been a part of The Raining Season. It has been amazing watching him grow and develop over the years. Because of sponsorship and an incredible staff to care for him, Alford is not only surviving, but he is THRIVING! He is healthy and growing big and strong. He is excelling in school. Soon, he will take his end of year exam to promote to the next grade level. Alford’s favorite thing to do is play soccer with his friends.



Alford’s story would have looked very different had it not been for The Raining Season. Thank you for being a part of Alford’s story and helping him achieve his hopes and dreams.
