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.

Ying Suchawadee

Ying Suchawadee comes from the original village of Mea Soon. Her parents are both tea farmers and from the Karen hill tribe.

Although she is usually pretty quiet, she’ll often burst out in laughter around her friends.

It’s always easy to spot her out in the crowd because she’s the only girl with curly hair.

She likes to spend time with friends and hopes to one day work in the medical field – so we’re expecting her to be a real star in school!
