Jared also receives sponsorship through The Smith Family. When Jared’s dad got sick and his mum had to give up her job to care for him, the family fell on financial hardship. Without sponsorship, Jared would miss out on extra-curricular activities that help him develop important social skills.
“Sponsorship gives him more opportunities. We could only do so much on the pension, so it makes it a lot easier when the kids should be participating in activities like school camps,” says Janet.
With this dual support to help him make the most of school, and the help of our donors and sponsors, Jared is now equipped to take on high school and make the most of his education.
