GoalIM seeks to raise $50,000 a year for the education of 125 orphans in China.
SummaryWe desire to help orphans break free of the cycle of poverty by giving them access to the same educational opportunities as other children. As they become productive members of their communities, their involvement will improve economic stability for everyone.
DescriptionXiao Yang lost her father to a heart attack when she was a baby. Her mother left several years later, so she now lives with her grandparents, who farm a very small plot of land. Thanks to support through this project, Xiao Yang has been able to stay in school. She hopes to pass the high school entrance exam in a couple of years and dreams of going on to college. Since 2003, the Amity Foundation program has helped students like Xiao Yang get an education. Today, the program serves 50 orphans, and there are plans to expand it to serve 125 children. Sponsorship provides them with clothing, food and school supplies, and it helps pay tuition and dorm fees.
Suggested Gifts$400 to sponsor one orphan's education for the year
Prayer RequestsPlease pray with Judith Sutterlin and our partners in China that these orphans will feel the love behind your gifts, and that they will grow into adults who work and serve in that same spirit of love.
