What Will They Be When They Grow Up?

Children everywhere have hopes and dreams for the future.  What do your kids want to be when they grow up?  What did you want to be and are you that now?

Here is what my sponsored kids want to do:

Guguloth (India) – Policeman
Cris (Indonesia) – Traffic Cop, Mechanic
Caua (Brazil) – Join the Army
Mukesh (India) – Policeman (“To catch thieves because they steal everything!”)

Tsigereda (Ethiopia) – Doctor
Pamela (Peru) – Business Manager
Clara (Philippines) – Accountant or Teacher
Keila (Bolivia) – Vet and “Someone who enjoys their job!”

Child Sponsorship can help these children make their dreams come true! And I hope that all  my kids become, in the words of my Keila, "Someone who enjoys their job!"
