My name is Faven and I am 7 years old. My name means “light”, and I sure do light up a room! I am described by my social worker as a “sweet, lovely and well-behaved girl”. I live with my mother and 10-year-old sister, Dibora. I love my sister so very much!
My mother had to leave my father due to a bad situation and she now cares for us by herself. She tries all the time to find work but no one will hire her because she has no skills or education. This makes me sad, and it’s hard for my sister and I because we don’t have much.
I enjoy playing jump rope with my sister the best. When I grow up I want to be a doctor and help people. A lot of us kids share this dream because we have seen so much sickness and suffering and we just want it to stop!
I would love to have a sponsor to write letters to like the other kids. I know my future could be bright, with the support and encouragement of a sponsor. I am patiently waiting!
It takes a village to raise a child. We welcome anyone who would like to be a part of Faven’s story to reach out to us:
