Say Hello to Sylvia


Shy. Sweet. Smart as a whip.

Sylvia is someone who has big dreams from big places. She has a heart that wants to give and the determination to achieve anything her heart desires. She is always full of giggles and is always there to lend a helping hand. She is sincere, she is caring, she is mighty.

DSC_3316She lived in her home with her 4 older sisters who still live there. Her mom provided what she could for the family by planting vegetables and selling them, but if no one bought their food they could not afford to eat for the day. When she came to school she often didn’t have food and was late to most of her classes. Now since being sponsored she eats three meals a day and is able to go to school without worrying where her next meal will come from. Her grades have improved since coming to the orphanage. She was position 13 in her class and now she has moved all to way to position 7 in her classes. Sylvia has such a bright future ahead of her and its all because of you supporting her. Her dreams can come true and be able to change the world for better. Thank you for being her American family.
