Sponsorship for Pendo
Pendo (left) is about 10 years old. She is a very helpful girl and also very diligent in doing the many tasks that need to be done in a community. For example, she is always the first to fetch water for the garden.
Pendo has a good grasp of games that require computational skills, such as Yahtzee. So whenever it's a matter of counting, combining.
Pendo's parents are Robert and Elisa Karama.
Linguistically, Pendo is able to repeat the German and English languages, but she is not yet able to narrate or speak freely in the foreign languages.
She has a calm, pleasant nature and can easily occupy herself for hours, even with herself, for example when painting.
Future: Pendo has a well-developed social behaviour. Therefore, she would be suitable for school and vocational training as a teacher, educator or nurse.
With your support of 40 euros per month , Pendo can go to primary school until she is about 16 years old. With your sponsorship, you finance the school fees, school clothing, food and other support.
After that, she can attend the Secondary School (comparable to the German Realschule) from around the age of 17. It is a full-boarding school, i.e. full board with living, sleeping, food, school materials, travel costs, clothing. The sponsorship for this would then amount to 120 euros per month.
Education OR study begins after completion of the 5th grade of secondary school and usually lasts 3-5 years. The children are usually 21 years old by then. Your sponsored child needs 600 euros per month for education or studies.
Accompanying the sponsored child until the end of the training would be desirable ! Of course, partial stages are also possible. We will then look for further sponsors for the child to ensure that a graduation is possible.
Your contact options:
Basically, we like it when the sponsored children contact their sponsors - no matter in which form. And the sponsors are always welcome to contact their sponsored children.
The easiest way to do this is via our association (email, WhatsApp, video message etc.) as the residents of the community usually do not have a mobile phone. Where the sponsored child has a mobile phone, WhatsApp or email, contact can of course also be made directly - but only when the child is of age (18 years) because we also have to protect the children from the pathological excesses of our western "civilisation" - child abuse, prostitution, enslavement. Because in the bush these things are not known and the people here are correspondingly ignorant and unprotected.
the assessment of the personal characteristics of the potential godchild is purely subjective. We experience the children/people in our daily life with them during our visits of several months.
People change and often you also have to experience disappointments. We try to promote those personalities where we, purely subjectively, see potential for development. No more, but also no less!
