It came to our attention that a major factor with a child’s success in primary school was whether or not they were able to attend pre-school before entering 1st grade. Without the basics of learning how to hold a pencil, learning their numbers, letters, colors, and shapes, the student starts primary school at a disadvantage. Most never catch up being doomed to failure in school.
Meet Paballo who is five years old. She is the youngest of the three children of a single mother. Their family is one of the neediest in Anchor Your Life. But, two weeks ago Paballo was given the chance of a lifetime. A friend of AYL agreed to sponsor Paballo at an English-speaking pre-school. Paballo’s mother agreed to delay sending her to school for an additional year so that her daughter could learn the basics and have the chance to be successful in school…and perhaps be the first in the family to complete high school!!!! We are elated for Paballo and can’t wait to see how God works in her life!
Paballo’s annual education costs for pre-school are $300 (just $25 a month). A pretty good investment to provide hope and possibly changing a life! Please pray that God will provide sponsors for 30 additional “Paballos” to attend pre-school.
