UPDATE: Lizz has thrived while at Seed's Children's Home. She is now 15 and in her first year of high school. She loves it and is working really hard since getting the chance to be in school again. Lizz also loves having so many sisters and brothers. We love Lizz - she is super sweet, smiles easily and is so giving and caring with the younger children. We're now looking for a new sponsor for Lizz as she continues in the Mighty Acorn program. It's our desire to help her finish her schooling and have a chance to reach for her dreams. Would you be willing to sponsor Lizz? We would love to connect her with someone that would send her a letter now and then, encouraging her to keep up with her schooling and believing she can do it!

ORIGINAL STORY: Lizz is the younger sister to Vaizil and she is 9 years old. Lizz is a bright young girl with dreams of being a school teacher one day and eventually a principal. However, due to her home situation she has not been able to attend school for some time now. When she was little her father left and hasn't been seen or heard from sense and her mother passed away of AIDS back in 2012. Leaving only her 68 year old grandmother to take care of her and her two brothers, one of whom is HIV positive. Due to Brian's medical needs and grandma being the only source of income, they can't afford to pay for school fees and it has been difficult  affording even their basic needs. Grandma wants what is best for her grandchildren and knows they will have a better life if they were in Seed's Children's Home, where they can go to school everyday, have food on their plates, and not have the worries their lives are burden with now. Lizz has a bright future ahead of her but only with the help of a special sponsor. Thank you for changing her life and giving her the dream to be great.
