Lily: A Story of Opportunity, Dedication, and Success

We first met Lily when she was a shy 13-year-old at an orphanage in Guangdong Province. She and the other teens at the social welfare institute where she lived were a close knit group of kids.

Over the next few years, through LWB’s Education Program, we have loved getting to know them all better. Lily was always so sweet to the younger kids when we would visit, and the orphanage director told us again and again what a kind and responsible person she was. We encouraged all of the teens we were working with to set big goals for themselves, and we told them that we would do everything possible to help their college dreams come true. Read more.

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.
