Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and truth. - 1 John 3:18
Our May Sponsorship Drive is coming to an end, but we are far from finished. We will continue to work toward our goal to partner with 100 new sponsors. We will continue to fight for each child that enters our gates. We will ensure that they have access to a safe place to live, essential medical care, nutritious food, opportunity through education, and spiritual nurturing every day.
Our kids are the reason why we do what we do. They are the reason you say yes to sponsorship. The reason our staff shows up every day. They are the reason why, more than ten years ago, our founders said yes to something bigger than themselves in Sierra Leone. We are raising up a new generation, one that will bring hope for the future.
Meet Ernest Lebbie. He is ten years old. Ernest and his sister, Esther, came to our center in September of 2019. Ernest takes pride in his work and excels in school. Last term, he took 3rd position in his class! He loves health education and soccer. When Ernest came to the center, he joined a group of boys that quickly became his family. When we first opened our doors, we made a commitment to raising a new generation that would be healed from the inside out. We want each life to become a ripple of change, bringing hope for generations to come. Our sponsorship program is key to this commitment. When you commit to sponsoring Ernest, he will have a safe place to grow and learn.
When you say “yes” to sponsorship, you make a difference in the life of one of our children, and you become part of their story. Our children come to TRS abandoned, hurt, and oftentimes hopeless. Because of the impact sponsorship has, piece by piece, slowly, they are rebuilt, transforming them from the inside out. Sponsorship provides education, shelter, nutrition, medical care, spiritual growth, opportunity, and so much more!
Sponsorship funds are the primary way we provide for the children and keep The Covering open. Each child requires multiple sponsors to continue to cover their basic needs. This week, Ernest needs 5 more sponsors to be fully sponsored.
Are you ready to say yes to sponsorship and helping Ernest? Get started here.
