UPDATED: Banfill is doing great. You can tell from his updated photos that he's loving life at Seeds. He's now in high school and is working really hard to take advantage of his opportunity to go to school and break out of that cycle of poverty he was born into. We've loved getting to know this guy. He's easy to talk to; loves to ask questions about life in America and how his sponsor has been. We've recently needed to find him a new sponsor - so if you're looking for a young guy that wants to connect - he's a great one. Would you consider sponsoring Banfill? He'll be grateful to connect with you.
ORIGINAL STORY: This is Banfill... this young man is 14 years old and has been through a lot in his short lifetime. He lost both of his parents several years ago and has been living with his elderly grandmother in the slum. Grandma has gotten very ill and can no longer care for him and his siblings. They have all been picking through trash and begging for food from the neighbors to survive. Sometimes his older sister is able to get a little work helping as a laborer but things have gotten almost impossible for them.
The local Children's office in Kitale has contacted our partners at Seed's and asked them to please help... so they have reached out to Mighty Acorn to help find a sponsor so Banfily can find a way into a better life. One that will allow him to go to school and have his basic needs met.
So we're reaching out to you... hoping for someone that can come alongside this young man and help him. Someone who will send a letter or email now and then letting him know his life as value and there are others that are willing to help him.
Would you consider sponsoring him - it truly will change his life.
