Remembering Noah

Last summer Henry, a student in LWB’s Hunan Secondary and Higher Education Program, had a burden on his heart.  Henry decided to contact LWB’s program manager and told him of his friend, Noah, a smart and determined 15-year-old boy who lived with his grandparents. 

Noah’s grandparents loved him and wanted him to fulfill his dream of attending school, but they were extremely poor and could not afford it. Henry even offered to give his friend his LWB sponsorship money to help, but it was arranged for Noah to become an LWB student as well. Read more.

Jonathan Shines

Five-year-old Jonathan has been in our Foster Care Program in Hunan since October 2009, when he was just two.  We first introduced him in 2010 in the blog, “Endearing Jonathan”, when he was just beginning to walk.  As we have come to know him over the years, we have seen him maintain his sweet spirit and charming personality while developing confidence in many areas.  Jonathan is now a happy, enthusiastic boy who attends kindergarten.

It’s hard not to be charmed by Jonathan as he performs a well-known Chinese children’s song in the video below called, “Ni Wa Wa”.  This song is about a doll who has no mother or father — just like little Jonathan. Read more.
