Welcome to Sponsorship Saturday, where, every Saturday, I hope to share about one or more kid living in poverty and in need of sponsorship, in hopes of finding sponsors for them.
However, for Sponsorship Saturday to accomplish it’s purpose, I’ll need your help! Please share these posts so that many people can become aware of people living in poverty and hopefully take action!
And, of course, please keep the Sponsorship Saturday kids and their families in your prayers.
Please note that it is my intention to both help the kids I spotlight, by spreading the word about their needs, and how others can help, and also, to honor the individuals I’m advocating for in my wording and the info I mention here. If you see anything that I’ve missed, or that I could do better to accomplish this goal, you are welcome to let me know in the comments.
Today I want to share with you about Oresta Samwel! Here is her sponsorship page.
Sweet Oresta Samwel is 4 years old, and is waiting for sponsorship through World Vision’s sponsorship program. She and her family probably speak Ha.
Oresta Samwel lives with her parents and four brothers in northwest of Tanzania, near the border with Burundi.
She likes to play!
The region where she lives in is flat, dry, and rural, and most people make their living growing crops like maize and cotton and raising animals like goats and sheep. Because of Kasanda’s remote location, farmers have difficulty gaining access to markets or new opportunities.
Farming families who can’t produce enough to get ahead often struggle to feed their children well, so kids in Kasanda face a greater risk of growing up malnourished. And families who can’t get ahead also have a harder time sending their children to school.
Neither of Oresta Samwel’s parents are currently employed, so sponsorship is especially important for her.
Sponsorship will help Oresta Samwel get better access to nourishing food that will help her grow up strong. In her community, farmers will have better training and market opportunities, so they can increase their production and income. Children will be supported to go to school and stay there, especially as World Vision helps parents become more aware of the dangers of child marriage and the options that come from education. And through it all, World Vision staff will display the love of Christ to people in need of hope.

Do you want to help? Giving, praying, and sharing are a few ways that you could help Oresta Samwel, or another vulnerable child!
Please consider sharing this post or sponsoring Oresta Samwel!
Of course, sponsorship is not for everyone, but that isn’t the only way to help. Maybe you could share? Maybe you could pray, or give a one time gift? Thanks for reading!
