Raymond came to the attention of our employee in Tanzania, Rose Herman, who asked if we could provide care and an education for this little fellow. At the time Ms. Herman saw the child he was wandering the streets with little care and even less food. At the age of __, Raymond is doing well in Mariado and has adjusted well to the educational environment. He is rapidly learning English, has gained weight, and is a happy little guy. Raymond is another child in need of a sponsor. Wonderful people from Austin, Texas have been supporting Raymond and four other children. However as retirement nears for the family they will not be able to continue sponsoring the children after December. Sponsors of the children receive quarterly school reports, pictures and a letter from the child. We make twice yearly visits (or more) to the Mariado School and are in regular communication with the children and the educators there. Our employee Irene Herman visits the school on a regular basis to make sure the children are flourishing in the care of the kind folks at Mariado School.
We hope some kind hearted person will step up and allow us to keep Raymond in school.
