Meet Ezekiel. He is 9 years old and is a single orphan. His father passed away and he lives with his mother and younger brother who has a different father. His mother works at the hospital as a cleaner and speaks very good English. We think she will be a huge asset to us in helping lead our Oke Ere group of caregivers who care of our kids in Oke Ere. When we interviewed Ezekiel he was barely able to recognize any of his letters and could not answer any math fact questions. Ezekiel and his mom live in Oke Ere which is a town about 30 minutes from Egbe. This town is much more rural with only 2 schools and 3 small churches. The education is very poor there and most of the children we meet cannot read or write well. We know it is going to be hard for Ezekiel to catch up but with the help from our special Foundations teacher we know God will help him. We will be asking someone to sponsor Ezekiel at $49 a month or $588 a year which is more than our normal $35 a month sponsorship. This is becuase we will be needing to transport him every day to and from his mom's house which is 30 minutes away from our C.A.R.E. Center. We will also be getting a special teacher for him to work with prior to the start of the school year in September so he can catch up. Please consider making a differance in Ezekiel's life by sponsoring him.
