Like many of the children in our program, Rose was sent away after the death of her mother. She has been living as a child in restavek since she was seven years old. Rose is now 10 and entering the 2nd grade. Before entering our program, Rose could not read or write and she never had the chance to attend school. Now, she is reading well and working hard to improve her writing.
Rose loves her child advocate and says she wants to be like her someday. She says the relationship she has developed with her child advocate has given her confidence at school and at home. She even dreams of becoming a nurse in the future.
Rose is one of hundreds of children in our child advocacy program still in need of a sponsor. Our child advocates offer love and encouragement to each child allowing them to realize their value.
To sponsor Rose, visit www.restavekfreedom.org/sponsorachild or call (513) 475-3710.
