Raising great kids doesn’t have to stop at home!

Let me introduce you to Lucy.  She’s 5 years old, lives in Zambia and has known little but poverty in her young life.  Both Lucy’s parents are alive, but the family has no proper source of income.

They have had to resort to peasant farming but still cannot make ends meet.  They live in a mud-grass house.  Without the help of charities they would have limited access to education, health care, food and clean water.

Their life is similar to thousands of others who live in the region.

How can we help Raising Great Kids like Lucy?

Charities such as Child Fund Australia and World Vision enable more fortunate families around the world to sponsor a child like Lucy.  Sponsorship enables these charities to provide what most of us take for granted – education, health, nutrition, sanitation, income generation and community services – to communities like the one Lucy lives in.

Just as raising great kids is important to most loving parents, it’s also important to Lucy’s parents.  Through the help of Child Fund Australia and its sponsors, Lucy’s parents can devote more time and energy to raising great kidsand not worry about the basic needs of survival that many of us take for granted.

Sponsor a Child Today

So why not sponsor a child today and help children like Lucy.  Maybe you already sponsor a child?  Or have you thought about it for ages but not got around to doing it (I know I did that for some time).

Thanks for reading another  raising great kids blog post.

    With 30 million more boys than girls in China (and increasing) because of selective abortion, this is a time-bomb ticking. My concern is that in 15 years time these little boys may start looking outside China for brides. Maybe we also need to be looking at sponsoring girls in China.

  2. You’re so right Wal – the situation in China regarding selective abortion is just awful.

    Hello Jan,
    Sponsoring a child is a great way to help raising great kids. Since years we have been sponsoring SOS Children Villages which provide a “family” for orphaned kids so they grow up in a stable environment together with their real siblings and have one (foster) mother throughout their life.
    I think we have to start with the kids as they will pass on their experiences. And if they learn that life is good to them, this is what will happen in the world. Long term.
