We asked a few alumni from Children of the Kingdom to write about their experience with our program. These letters show the difference that sponsorship made in their lives and the impact that can be made in others’ stories as well.
Here is one letter from Samson (pictured on the right below) in India.
Dear Children of Kingdom,
I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. My name is Samson, and I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the immense impact your organization has had on my life. Through your unwavering support and sponsorship, I have been able to overcome adversity and pursue my dreams, achieving milestones I never thought possible.
Growing up in Rajahmundry, I was faced with numerous challenges. My father, unfortunately, became handicapped due to an accident, and my mother worked as a daily wage laborer under a mason to support our family. Financial constraints often made it seem impossible for me to receive an education and build a better future for myself.
However, the moment I was introduced to the Children of Kingdom program, my life took a turn for the better. Your organization recognized my potential and provided me with the means to pursue my dreams. With your support, I was able to complete my technical education in electrical engineering and even secured an apprenticeship with the Indian Railways.
The knowledge and skills I gained during my education and apprenticeship opened doors of opportunity for me. Today, I am proud to share that I am working in Hyderabad, in a prestigious company within the electrical field. The sense of pride and accomplishment I feel is immeasurable. I owe this success to your unwavering support and the opportunities you have provided me.
Children of Kingdom has been a guiding light in my journey. Your dedication to empowering children through education is truly commendable. By investing in my education and providing the necessary support, you have helped break the cycle of poverty and uplifted me and my family.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to all the sponsors, donors, volunteers, and staff members who have worked tirelessly to make Children of Kingdom's mission a reality. Your compassion and commitment have transformed my life and the lives of countless children like me. Your support has given us hope, inspired us to dream big, and provided us with the tools to turn those dreams into reality.
I am deeply grateful for the opportunities I have received through your organization. I am committed to making the most of these opportunities and giving back to my community. I want to be a beacon of hope for others facing similar challenges, just as Children of Kingdom has been for me.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for empowering my dreams and believing in my potential. Your organization's unwavering support has given me the strength to overcome obstacles and achieve what once seemed impossible. I am forever grateful, and I promise to pay it forward by making a positive impact in the lives of others.
With profound gratitude,
