SPONSORSHIP SUNDAY: Meet Josette Mbabazi!

It’s hard to believe that today’s post is the ninth in our Sponsorship Sunday series! The weeks have been flying by. I hope you’re enjoying meeting some of our beautiful Shelter Them kids. We currently have 22 children, boys and girls, ranging in age from 1 to 19, available for sponsorship. Most of our children are either orphans or have been abandoned or given up by their parents, so we provide a home atmosphere for them. Each of our children lives in a house with up to five other children and one caretaker, so the children have as normal a life as possible instead of living in an orphanage environment. Shelter Them is also a registered non-profit organization in both Canada and Rwanda, and you can learn more about us by clicking the "Shelter Them" tab at the tob of this page.

This sweetheart is Josette Mbabazi. She is twelve years old, and her birthday is February 3. She is also the sister of Daniel and Joshua (you can read about them by clicking their names).

Josette is the middle child of six, with two older siblings (Elie and Sandrine) and three younger (Josiane, Daniel, and Joshua). She was seven years old when her father deserted the family. Her mother was expecting her sixth child at that time. When the children’s mother died while giving birth to baby Joshua, older brother Elie tried his best to keep the family together. Elie was barely thirteen at the time, and the children were slowly heading towards certain starvation. Thankfully, a neighbor who had promised the children’s mother that she would take care of the children, told the whole story to Shelter Them. Shelter Them was able to rescue the children and place them into our Kanombe Home with a wonderful lady named Clarisse, who has adopted the children as her own.

This is our sweet girl shortly after coming to live at Kanombe. Isn’t she adorable?

Here is the most recent picture of Josette, in her new school uniform provided by Shelter Them. She is growing into a beautiful and confident young lady!

And here is our beautiful girl!

For just $40 a month ($38 U.S.) you can sponsor Josette and make sure that she is well provided for throughout her life. You sponsorship will make sure that Josette is cared for as she reaches her teen years, and that her food, education, and everything else she needs is provided for. You can write to Josette and expect to receive regular letters and photo updates in return, and you can even choose to visit her in Rwanda!

If you’d like to sponsor Josette Mbabazi, or if you would like to view the rest of our children available for sponsorship, you can visit us here: Shelter Them Child Sponsorship.

Feel free to share this page with your family and friends so we can find her a sponsor!
