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.

Gai

Gai is the younger sister of Mint, who will graduate high school next year.

Gai grew up in the Karen village of Mae Soon along with many of our other new kids. Her parents are both subsistence rice farmers – they made enough to live, but never had any savings.

With Warm Heart’s support, Gai can finally afford to attend school.

When she’s not hanging out with her childhood friends from the Mea Soon village, you can usually find her helping out with chores or reading a book.

She’s very mature for her age! She likes to play around with her friends at school. She wants to be a nurse when she gets older.
