Meet The Students

Each year we sit down and interview the Agoni students, the students that have their education costs sponsored.  We do this in order to keep track of students and to learn their needs.  It is a gift to us to be able to see how they have grown, connect with them each individually and watch through our record keeping of their pictures and stories, how their lives have changed.  Some of these changes are encouraging, a lot are heartbreaking. It shows us the true resilience of children and people. Regardless, the students love having their picture taken and we love seeing their faces one on one each year.  Here is a snippet into some of their lives.
