Delalegn's Story: A Passionate Student on the Path to Success
Meet Delalegn. We met this young man 3 years ago. Delalegn is a student in our Robit School. He is 16 years old and is in the 5th grade. Delalegn lost both of his parents and when we met him was staying wherever he could. He spent a lot of his time asking for help from a generous people who would offer him assistance. Since we met Delalegn he has been sponsored by a U.S. family and is working hard in school. He has food, clothing, and all his school supplies. He even has a place to stay. Not only that but he is one of the TOP students in his class! We are so proud of him.
Your contributions have helped many others like him to begin to succeed in school giving them hope for a better future.
TESTIMONY FROM PASTOR TAMMY SHARP
Acts of Wisdom is an organization with boots on the ground. While they certainly use donations to help build classrooms for children or purchase books and other supplies needed for the hundreds of children who attend school in the most remote areas it is in the relationship building that significant progress is made to help children and adults alike. At the first school we went to we were greeted like we were rock stars! The children swarmed us like we were the most significant people in the world. Boosted the ego just a bit. But it was when we toured the school and actually had the chance to sit and talk with some of the teachers and children that I more fully understood how Acts of Wisdom is changing lives through quality education and community relationships. The teachers teach with no heat or air-conditioning and often no windows. They teach more children than in a classroom made of mud walls should hold. They teach with joy and love. They give the children hope and encouragement as well as education. The children are so very eager to learn and they treasure each book, each day they get to attend school, and every person who has been a part of providing this opportunity. I was humbled and amazed at the difference Acts of Wisdom is making in these schools and throughout these communities. It was such a blessing for me to be able to be a part of a trip to see it all in person, and to be a supporter now!
