No Longer a Far-Fetched Dream
Bonya’s* life was transformed when World Vision installed water pumps in her community in Zambia. “I used to wake up at 4am to go and draw water, and return at 6am to bath before leaving for class. I never used to have my breakfast before going to school because I would be late after drawing water,” shares 13-year old Bonya. “Once, I was bitten by a snake on my way to draw water in the early hours; water was indeed a challenge,” she adds.
“I am very excited that clean and safe water is available. I no longer have diarrhoea and my attendance in school has improved. I am now hopeful that I will make good grades in class. My future is bright, being a nurse is no longer a far-fetched dream, but in sight,” Buuya said with a happy smile.
Walk the distance with the children, to experience the challenge and hear their dreams for the future. Learn how child sponsorship allows children to go to school, improve accessibility to clean water and equip families with livelihood skills so that for children like Bonya, having a bright future is no longer a far-fetched dream.
