Age: 11 (April 3, 2006)
Hobby: Football (Soccer)
Hero: Mrs. Tum (class teacher)
Cost: $436 /yr ($36.33 /mo) for tuition, boarding, and food
Situation: Nancy’s father has epilepsy and her mother, Teresa, works at St. Jacob’s school as a helper. They live on half of an acre of inherited land and they have 4 children, two of which will be in high school this upcoming year. They farm to provide food and to fund the two oldest children to attend high school. They also depend on the grandfather's generosity. Nancy would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
