“Jordan gets letters from his sponsors. He likes writing them cards and drawing pictures. It’s good for him to know there’s somebody who’s interested in how he’s going,” said Chris.
Knowing that Jordan’s education needs were looked after took some stress off Chris. It gave him the chance to retrain so he could find another job. Finances are still tight, but things are more manageable and Chris is balancing work with looking after Jordan.
“My job offer came a couple of months into volunteering at Jordan’s school. The principal asked if I would ever want to work there,” said Chris.
“Now I work as a teacher’s assistant for children with autism. I work with seven or eight kids all day, every day. It's the best job I've ever had!”
With the ongoing support of sponsors, disadvantaged children can look towards futures that are full of possibilities. It’s how long-term sponsorship transforms lives. And parents like Chris are so grateful for the support.
