Situation:  Ian’s parents have both passed away. His father died of liver disease and his mother passed away due to cancer in 2016, leaving behind 7 other kids. There are 8 children total (Gladys- a teacher, Eunice- dropped out after 8th grade, Geoffrey- dropped out of 7th, Leonard- class 8 public, Meshack- class 6 public, Ian, Marion- class 4, and Elvis- 2 years old). They live with their grandmother on a half-acre piece of land. They depend on the grandmother, who is aging, and on Eunice for food and provision of basic needs. Ian would be very grateful for a sponsor and an opportunity to go to school.
