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.
Nuey Supatchaya is going to guide tours someday and has made learning English one of her priorities.
She is a bright kid who excels at English class and pushes herself to read books in English in our library.
A new seventh grader at Warm Heart who has just moved up from Tong Roong, our partner school, Nuey is actually from Tong Roong village.
Nuey is Lanna Thai, the 13-year-old middle child of very poor parents. Her mom and dad struggle to make ends meet doing sewing and piecework because her Dad’s health does not permit him to do hard labor.
With so little income, it’s hard to fund three growing kids’ and two elderly grandparents.
Having Nuey at Warm Heart is a blessing.
