Meet Segun. He is 9 years old and is a single orphan. His mother is dead and no one knows anything about the father. He lives with his grandmother who is deaf and dumb so he is normally fending for himself or a neighbor helps. He is currently enrolled in the public school but when tested he could not read or do any math. Segun and his grandma live in Oke Ere which is a town about 30 minutes from Egbe. This town is much more rural with only 2 schools and 1 church. 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 Segun 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 Segun 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 grandma'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 Segun's life by sponsoring him.
