Sulemana, like so many rural children, was pulled from school to tend animals and support the family’s small subsistence farm. As a sponsored child, RAINS intervened to help return Sulemana to school and support his family. “I am happy to be back in school and I thank our friends in Canada who are supporting us through the child sponsorship program. We not only have adequate teaching and learning materials, but our parents are beginning to realize the need for us to be in school through the education they receive as parents of sponsored children,” Sulemana said.
