Meet Margorie!

Gogo loves to sing and dance and her favorite subjects in school are Math and Science.

Gogo lives with her aunt, brother, sister and seven other family members. Her parents are separated but still find some time to spend with the family. The children are being supported by their aunts and uncles. The ten family members all live together in a small house made of wood, a galvanized iron sheet roof, and cement floors.

By sponsoring Gogo, she will begin to receive the tangible benefits such as education and nutrition. This will also provide the family to be fully integrated in a local caring community, with programs and services designed to improve their quality of life and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
