Jorja and Sreylis share a special connection – they’re the same age, both have September birthdays, love cooking and drawing flowers. Since sponsoring, they’ve exchanged letters and shared excitement over the new friendship.
For Jorja's father Brent, the connection has been special in other ways, too. “We really look forward to the correspondence that we get,” he says. “We sit together as an entire family and we talk about the things we are able to understand and find out.”
Together, the family is getting the chance to not only build a relationship with a child who lives far away, but also get excited about what they can do to make change.
“It’s certainly been exciting to see … my children become passionate about making a difference,” Brent says.
