When we asked 10 children in our Child Sponsorship Program to share about their favorite possession, there was one thing all of their answers had in common. What they valued most wasn’t necessarily new, or shiny, or expensive.
Instead, it was connected to an emotion: a precious memory, a feeling of dignity, a sense of joy. These children may have little in life, but they say they have a lot to thank God for.
From remote, isolated tribal communities to bustling cities and crowded slums, these are their beautiful, surprising and funny answers!
If you’d like to give the child you sponsor a gift that he or she will treasure, you can give a one-off financial gift to his or her family. Our local child development center staff will sit down with the whole family to discuss what they need and purchase the gift on your behalf.
