Making Her Dreams Come True: Lumière

For Lumière Bwana Nsenga, the feelings toward her sponsor go beyond a formal relationship. She considers her sponsor to be like a mother to her, because in her eyes, her sponsor cares for her as she would for a daughter.

“She helps me by paying for my studies and spending her money, so I can study in better conditions and have a quality education,” says Lumière, a 7th primary student at Malaika.

“Education is so important, because through it I can make my dreams come through, prepare well for my future and help members of my community.” Our students love catching up with their sponsors, and sponsors are always delighted to learn about their students’ personalities, latest news, dreams, families and progress in school.
