The 6th child in a family of 10 children, there was no money for Lucy to pay the required fees to attend school. Wanting to help, a compassionate aunt brought Lucy from her rural village to the city. The idea was that there Lucy could find work as a maid and raise money for her education.
Lucy’s aunt—a widow who lost her husband to HIV/AIDS a decade ago—understands what it is to lack opportunities and support. She was left to raise her five orphaned children and has struggled to provide for even them.
After about a year in the city without success funding even little jobs to raise modest funds for school, Lucy met CAFI partner Destiny Friends International (DEFI). A small organization itself founded and staffed by HIV-impacted individuals, DEFI’s identifies vulnerable children like Lucy to assist through their after-school and Saturday children’s clubs.
. . .because people like YOU decided to become Guardian Angels for these . . . very vulnerable children, Lucy has just completed her first year at school.
Through local volunteers, DEFI raised enough money to send Lucy to school for one semester. Then, CAFI learned about Lucy. And because people like YOU decided to become Guardian Angels for these precious and very vulnerable children, Lucy has just completed her first year at school.
Lucy is just one of millions of HIV-impacted children around the world who need Guardian Angels.
This Holiday Season YOU can join CAFI’s growing band of Guardian Angels by providing an education for Lucy and so many other young girls like her to equip them to live healthy, hopeful lives.
