The impact of sponsoring a child in Africa
Tassy would say, "Grandma, I need some food. I am hungry," and her Grandma had nothing to give her. Tassy’s cries drove her Grandma to a neighbour to beg for a bit of porridge.
But then Tassy and her grandparents received five goats from World Vision. Her Grandma, Jeracy says, "The day that the goats were coming for me was the greatest day for me. It was the day of the greatest joy that I have ever had. I knew that was the beginning of a change."
The goats quickly provided milk for food and an income for Tassy's grandparents. After struggling for food, the family now has enough money to eat, buy soap and clothes, and pay for Tassy’s education.
Tassy wants to be a nurse, but her grandparents say she’s so smart they want her to pursue being a doctor.
Tassy’s sponsor sent an extra gift of money, which they used to buy a mattress and blankets, neither of which Tassy ever had before.
