As part of my 101 in 1001 goals I had taken the goal to start sponsoring a child or an animal. Well, at the end of July I had then finally decided to start sponsoring a girl in Sierra Leone, the poorest country on Earth through Plan International. Very soon after I had contacted Plan though the Internet, I received the details of my sponsired child, the 5-year-old Kadiatu. She looks like a happy child in the photo I received and I'm really happy to be supporting her and her community.
If you have the means, I really recommend sponsorship to everyone. I feel so good knowing that I'm really helping someone that otherwise would hardly have a chance in life.
