Today Elizabeth is on her way to fulfilling her dream of becoming a doctor – but a few years ago she felt there was “no hope for my future.”
Both parents died from HIV-AIDS while Elizabeth was still in nursery school. Her grandmother raised Elizabeth and her older sisters, but struggled to meet the children’s basic needs.
Orphaned and living in poverty, Elizabeth was at risk of dropping out of school. Too often, young women in this situation marry immediately and become mothers at a very young age. Some girls make even more desperate choices in an attempt just to survive.
But thankfully Hope Story’s local in-country church partner stepped in to help Elizabeth! This intervention was only possible because of the generosity of a caring monthly supporter. A team member visited her at home and told her the good news: “We will pay for your high school fees!”
“Then I had hope about my future,” Elizabeth tells us now. “I would be able to learn! I plan to be a doctor some day. My dream is to help other people the way I was helped.”
And because kids need whole-person care so they can grow up strong and confident, Elizabeth also received nutritious food, clothing & shoes, health checks, spiritual mentoring, and counseling. All in a supportive, caring Christian community.
