Breanda lives in the hillside community of Buyobo, home to approximately 9,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, mud walls and corrugated iron, grass or banana fiber roofs.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bananas, fish, cassava, rice, potatoes, greens and goat. Common health problems in this area include malaria, intestinal diseases, respiratory infections, HIV/AIDS, skin diseases and high blood pressure. Most adults work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $6 per month. This community needs tuition assistance, scholastic materials, improved incomes and a recreational center.

My sponsorship allows the staff of Buyobo Child Development Center to provide Breanda with Bible lessons, health and dental screenings, immunization, sports, special celebrations, counseling and vocational training. The center staff will also provide meetings, Bible studies and income-generating activities for the parents or guardians of Breanda.

I have been beyond blessed by this opportunity and would love to help you get involved with providing the needs for another child through Compassion International!*
Compassion International provides all the information in a booklet like the one in the pictures above and sends updates through email as well as with the letters from your sponsor child!

*I receive no compensation or such through this, only the satisfaction of knowing another child's needs are taken care of!
