What does it mean to a child to have a sponsor?

It means that they are not alone, there is someone out there who cares about them.

Someone who provides wings for them to pursue their dreams, and build a future for themselves through an education.

It means the world to them.


Jaran is already everyone’s favorite helper.

On Saturday and Sunday mornings when he is ready to start the yard work, the first guy Dr. Shafer asks for is Jaran.

He is a BIG fourteen and has a lot of experience carrying a load.

His father disappeared and his mother struggles to support herself and her two boys as a day laborer in the small, mountain village of Mae Sai Koaw.

Without Warm Heart’s support, neither boy could have gone to school.

Today, Jaran is in seventh grade, excelling at math and football.
