I have a child in Zambia

Meet Kessia.

She lives in Zambia with her 2 sisters, brother, and parents. Her parents struggle to provide for their family. She is twelve years old, enjoys studying her Native Language, and is learning to cook. Through World Vision, Garth and I have committed to financially supporting her and her family.


Why? Because it's not okay that she does not have access to safe water. It's not okay that 59% of Zambians live in poverty. It's not okay that HIV/AIDS ravages the country's population. It's not okay. So Garth and I are partnering with our church and World Vision to do something about it.


We are excited to welcome her into our little family!

That is great! My husband and I support a child in Brazil named Marcelo. I love when his letters and drawings come in the mail! Such a great feeling.
