Dreaming Big for Sweet Melissa

Please consider sponsoring Melissa’s education in our Cambodia education program. You’ll be giving her the lasting gift of HOPE.

Sweet Melissa is four years old and attends our Sibling School, a safe early childhood education center that serves the vulnerable children of Sokhem Village. Thanks to supporters of our Cambodian Education programs, her older sister has been attending our Sokhem Believe in Me School while Melissa has received nurturing care and quality nutrition at the Sibling School.

When Melissa is not at school, she stays with her grandmother. To earn money to support the family, her mother works in a factory away from the village and is not able to care for Melissa and her sisters.

Melissa continues to grow and develop as a very healthy and happy, soon-to-be preschooler. She is described as friendly, always smiling, never easily upset or frightened, inquisitive, and very smart. All day long she is busy exploring and exudes with a natural confidence that comes from feeling secure, loved, and valued.

Now Melissa’s baby sister, Michelle, has joined her at the Sibling School, where she receives high-quality formula and food as well as the focused attention of our care providers. It’s pretty obvious that Michelle feels relaxed and quite at home at the Sibling School!

Now it is Michelle’s turn to benefit from the dedicated care of our loving nannies, and we’re so thankful she has a safe and supportive place to spend her days with Melissa. We love this precious video of them playing lovingly with a baby doll!

We’re so grateful to LWB supporters who have made it possible for us to provide a safe place, nutrition, clean water, basic medical care, and an enriching environment to all of the children in our Cambodian Education programs. We need more monthly sponsors to fund this program, and we’re asking you to consider joining us by sponsoring Melissa or another child in need.

Our education programs can only exist with the help of our donors. Please DREAM BIG with us, and help make education possible for the very impoverished children in our programs.
