Byron lives in a small rural community with his older brother, Freddy, and his parents. Byron’s father is alcoholic and does not support the family financially. His mother works for the city, but her contract is for six months and may not be renewed. His grandfather currently helps support the family by paying for some of the boys’ educational expenses. Byron has had a difficult time this year adjusting to the amount of homework he receives in middle school and was falling behind. His mother reports that he is often does not want to go to school. Byron needs the additional support and consistency that the sponsorship program provides. Without this support, he is likely to drop out of school. Will you sponsor Byron and help him stay in school?
