Sandra was raised in a community in Zimbabwe where opportunities were limited because of extreme poverty. But, thanks to Child Sponsorship, she was given the opportunity to go to school.
“I became a sponsored child when I was in grade 2. I was 8 years old. I enjoyed the benefits of textbooks, being sponsored by Plan. That changed my life because I could study hard.”
Now, Sandra is a teacher and is teaching her students about the importance of education.
“I am trying to insist to them [students], to make sure, that they can be like me or go as far as what I have done in my life,” says Robson, with pride.
