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 Sutinan

Nuey Sutinan is a jokester and wherever she goes, laughter trails after.

She may be the youngest of three children of poor, subsistence farmers in the Karen Hill Tribe village of Mae Soon, but she’s not looking back.

She loves math and already knows that someday she wants to be an accountant.

Of course, math does not take up all her time, and when she is not in the dining room studying with our math teacher, Leung Ead, she is in the library crafting or playing games.
