Child Sponsorship:Shedding Light this Holiday

As 2013 draws to a close, it is natural to reflect on the months that have come and gone. Beyond the consideration of whether we loved, lived or laughed, many will find ourselves pondering how purposeful our days and moments were. Did we make an impact? Did we matter? Individuals looking for a sense of purpose this season should look towards child sponsorship through Pearl S. Buck International’s Opportunity House program. Child Sponsorship sends a message to Sponsored Children that they matter. Child sponsorship lets Child Sponsors know that their lives matter, too.
Child Sponsors are Dream Makers.
Beyond the basics of food, water and shelter, child sponsorship provides opportunities and hope for children through education and it is that education that becomes the fuel for their dreams. The gift of child sponsorship is a ticket to dream.

It is a pathway out of poverty and despair. Knowing that someone, somewhere cares for them, not only brings the outside world closer for the sponsored children, but it gives them the tools they need to be successful.

Education is by far one of the most powerful tools they can have in their toolbox to build self-reliance and self-esteem in order to construct a solid future. Child sponsorship enables children to remain a vibrant part of a community where they can have impact and break the cycle of poverty and suffering.
Bringing Peace, Joy and Light
We invite you to shed some light this holiday season. Child sponsorship brings light into the life of a child. Changing the life of a child as a child sponsor also brings joy and light into the heart of the sponsor, adding meaning to their life, and yes, it will matter.
