Who is your Role-Model?
We recently received the following story written by one of our amazing Staff, Tigist:
“Out of the Ashes admitted 24 new students into the program recently. Most of them are raised by single moms or have to deal with irresponsible dads. While developing their profiles, one of the questions posed for these beautiful souls was ‘WHO THEIR ROLE MODEL IS.’
Most of the children answered ‘MY MOM!’
These children have lived with several people in their neighborhood and interacted with a bunch of students and teachers in their schools. They may have crossed paths with a lot of people and the list goes on. However, the only person who could come to their minds when they think of someone who showed kindness, who is consistent in their lives and someone to look up to is THEIR MOMS!
It may seem enough for now to have their moms having bold marks in their lives. Nonetheless, the world does not revolve around their families only. Soon enough, they will grow up to search for a reliable companion, someone to rely on.
Our sponsors have been a source of comfort, courage and inspiration for their sponsored children as they poured their love and compassion. This act of kindness has impacted the lives of our children immensely. They have got a new FRIEND to look up to. Most of our sponsored children aspire ‘TO BE LIKE THEIR SPONSORS’ when they grow up! They aim to pay it forward by showing kindness for people in need. A few of them have already started stretching their helping hands through their charity club, and lifting each other up in their girls’ club.
So, do you want to step up to be A ROLE MODEL?”
Sponsor one of these sweet kiddos today to change their life so they can CHANGE THE WORLD.
