David's Family

David (second from left) and his family in Mexico have benefited from his sponsorship, which has allowed him and his siblings to gain full educations.

A couple of years ago, David's sponsors asked him a few special questions in a letter. What were his plans for the future? Did he want to attend college, and did he wish to stay enrolled with ChildFund's local partner organization in his town in Mexico? He said yes to both.

Next year, David expects to finish high school with a special degree in community development, after which he hopes to study law in university.

This was possible through the support of his sponsors, a German couple who have been with him since he was 7 years old. They covered his school costs for the past two years, allowing David's parents to have an easier time paying his three siblings' educational expenses. His sponsors also plan to continue financing David's education until he's ready to pursue a career.

"We've been friends for nine years, and lately my sponsors shared their interest in supporting my education," David says. "I take this opportunity to send them my most sincere thanks for the support they've given me."

Over the years, his sponsors have corresponded regularly with David, sending him letters and cards for birthdays and Christmas. This special relationship has meant great things for David, his parents and siblings Sandra, Edith and Alex Jacinto, who also are excelling in school. A bright future awaits them all.
