Sumaya is a little girl living with her mother and older sister in Uganda. Her father left when her mother became pregnant with her and he has never been involved in her life. Now, her mother works as a businesswoman, but she makes very little money. Because of her mother’s financial condition, Sumaya is unable to attend even the cheapest school in the area. Would you like to provide Sumaya with an education and other much needed resources? When you sponsor Sumaya through AMG, she receives educational support, nutritious food, and teaching from the Bible. Thank you for preparing her for a brighter tomorrow!
