A Small Act

I recently watched a documentary called A Small Act.  It is about Hilde Back, a teacher in Sweden, who sponsored a young Kenyan student named Chris Mburu.  Hilde’s sponsorship allowed Chris to attend high school in Kenya.  After later graduating from Harvard Law School and becoming a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations, Chris decided to find Hilde, and, inspired by her generosity, he started a scholarship program of his own and named it for her.

This movie really inspired me, and I could not help but think of the children at FOVC, our partner organization in southern Ethiopia.  What could our sponsorship of just one child (or all of them) lead to?  Could these children go to Harvard Law School one day if they are just given a chance? “And the one poor child that saved this world, and there’s 10 million more who probably could, if we all just stopped and said a prayer for them.”

Stay tuned for more news on sponsorship opportunities, and what EOR is doing to support these children!

This is Tseganesh. She is 8 years old, and live in southern Ethiopia. Will you give her a chance to go to school?

  1. My mom was just talking about this documentary too–she was very inspired and I think might be among the first people to choose to sponsor a FOVC kiddo (hint hint, mom!).

    Stay tuned everyone for sponsorship opportunities


  2. Feel free to email me-I would love to hear more of what you’re thinking about as far as FOVC sponsoship! (this week is crazy, so don’t be surprised if it takes me until later in the week to get back to you!)
