Uganda is home for Mariam and her Muslim family. Mariam and her older brother are cared for by their mother who works as a part-time laborer. She was abandoned by her father when he discovered her mother was pregnant with her, and he has not been involved in her life since. Mariam has a dream of one day becoming a doctor, but she needs help achieving that goal. Mariam is looking for a sponsor who will help her and her mother afford the education, nutritious food, and Bible teaching that AMG provides. Would you consider sponsoring Mariam today? Together, we can change the life of this child and expose this family to the transformative power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
