The 3 C’s of life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.
This is very true for most of us. However, if you are living in poverty, a lot of those choices might not be choices that are open to you. They are only choices for other people. Those choices don’t apply to people like you. You are too poor to get yourself out of the situation you are in. You are stuck without choices, chances and changes.
What if the choice is to go to primary school today hungry, or work all day for 10p to try to buy some food?
What if the choice is to buy some food or to buy a candle so you can have light to do your homework?
What if you want to go to get a job but you’ve no shoes and and only have rags to wear?
What if you’ve worked really hard at primary school, passed your leavers exams but you cannot go to secondary school because you can’t afford the school fees?
The hundreds of vulnerable children supported by The William Stewart Foundation don’t have the choices that we take for granted. Choices aren’t for the most vulnerable. Chances for a better future aren’t going to happen by themselves. Change cannot happen without help. Without our help. Without your help.
These children want to have choices, have chances and make changes. They need opportunities and they need us. Eventually, they will be self-sufficient, but they need our compassion and commitment in the short term. Can you help a vulnerable young person to go to secondary school for four years? It’s less than £1 a day to sponsor a young person and give them choices and chances to make positive changes. Can you help us change lives in Malawi? firstname.lastname@example.org The young people below are all looking for a sponsor to have the chance of education. thanks for reading, Sarah x
