An education isn't enough to help change how one feels about life

Helping a child to stay in school and be educated isn’t enough to help them find a little contentment when they have had a sad situation for a long time.

One girl CEF has helped for five years has lost both parents, hardly sees her siblings, and when she does it's not quality time as they are busy trying to make ends meet, and on top of that she has only one friend.

She is overcome with sadness still. We can't change how she feels, but can only continue to help her finish her education, care for her, and let her know her sponsor also cares for her.


  1. I am so pleased to be this young girl's sponsor through GoPhilanthropic Foundation. I am also very proud of her because even though she is sad, she is a lovely young woman and doing well in school. I will plan to write her a personal note.

    1. Dear Linda,

      Thanks for that sweet note Linda.

      It must be challenging for her to study hard all the way through her studies while so sad and low. I am thrilled she has hung in there and has nearly finished her studies. We at CEF are proud of this sweet young woman too!

      I am sure she would love to hear from you.
