Forward is an orphan who lives in the rural village of Chasiyatende, where the typical home is constructed from mud bricks, with a grass roof and mud floor. There is no plumbing, electricity or running water and they must collect their water from the river or an unprotected well. In Chasiyatende, Forward will face many environmental and social challenges including malnutrition, AIDS and child abuse. Your sponsorship makes it possible for Forward to attend school where he will receive nutritious food, basic health care, and learn about God’s love for him. In addition, he attends church. When he has free time, Forward enjoys riding his bike and working drawing. He also won an athletics competition at the zonal level last year. Please remember to pray for Forward. Your love and support will help him receive the assistance he needs to develop to his full potential.
