Student Support: Meet Belle

Bright and determined are the first words that come to mind as we describe thirteen-year-old Belle, the final student we are featuring in our Impoverished Student Support Program.


To help pay for the family’s needs, Belle’s father works in Shenzhen while his family remains in rural Hunan, and they aren’t able to see him very often. Belle is extremely close with her mother and really misses her when she is away at middle school where she is a boarder. Read more.

Student Support: Meet Zita

Zita is a sixteen-year-old high school student who is part of our Impoverished Student Support program in Hunan.


In 2010, Zita’s life changed forever when her father was involved in a very serious car accident. He survived but was unable to return to work, and Zita’s mother and treasured little sister have been forced to live in another city to try to earn money to support the family. Read more.

Lee is a fourteen year old student in our Impoverished Student Support program, and we all think he has such a funny and candid personality. He’s currently in middle school and is working towards gaining acceptance to a good quality high school. Read more.

Student Support: Meet Yvonne

Just seven years old, Yvonne had a very difficult beginning to her life. She says, “My mother died the day I was born, giving her life for mine.”


Just two years after her mother’s death, her father was killed in a car accident. Yvonne’s grandparents are raising her. They work in rice paddy fields to earn money for the family, but understandably they are faced with many financial challenges. Read more.

Student Support: Meet Sandy

When Sandy entered LWB’s Impoverished Student Support program in the fall of 2013, she was 13 years old and beginning 8th grade.


Sandy’s first letters to her sponsors were short and spoke only of her academic achievement. As the months went on, Sandy began to open up more to her sponsors and began to share her hopes and dreams with us. Read more.

Zara, First in Her Class!

Zara entered LWB’s Hunan Secondary and Higher Education Program during the summer of last year, when she was preparing to begin her junior year in high school. Zara told us that she really wanted to attend school and hopefully go to college.


When we first met Zara she told us of her family. She lives with her aging grandmother, who suffers from constant bronchitis, and her father, who has a bad back that keeps him from working. Read more.

Michael from Chenzhou

Being a twelve-year old boy on the shared list of children waiting for adoption is not easy. These boys are often overlooked as potential adoptive parents are looking for children who are younger. Michael is the oldest boy in our programs waiting to be chosen by a family, and we wanted to feature him again today to let everyone know this wonderful boy is still waiting!


Michael is a twelve-year old student in our Education program in Chenzhou, Hunan. As you can see from these photos, he has a sunken right eye. What you can’t see is that he also he is a considerate boy with a big heart! Read more.
