Kehong’s Dream

Kehong family

No matter how hard Kehong dreams and wishes she was your average 17-year-old girl, she is not. Her story has not gone the way she would have written it. Kehong lives with her father and her grandmother. They live in a small concrete house on the side of a mountain.


When Kehong was just two years old, her mother ran away from home. She has never been heard from again. She left Kehong with her father, who suffers from a serious back injury. He is unable to do heavy labor but does odd jobs to make money to support his daughter and his 83-year-old mother.

Kehong has always done the housework, the laundry, and has generally helped her father.

However, Kehong wants more from life. She dreams of going to school and studying to better her family’s life. She dreams of learning and going to college. She dreams of an education. We are in need of sponsors to believe in Kehong and to help her write herself a new story:  a story of self-confidence, hope and achievement!


Donations to sponsor Kehong in any amount will help her dream come true. Sponsors will receive quarterly updates and photos and can write to Kehong to offer her encouragement and to let her know how much she is valued.
