Alex Hage, originally from Inwood, IA and now a college student at Iowa State University in Ames, IA began sponsoring Rosemond about a year and a half ago.
Alex quotes, ” I love this program for many reasons. One of the biggest ones is because it seems much more personal. You cannot beat getting the chance to actually go and see the child you sponsor. I have been lucky enough to actually visit Haiti. Since I’ve gone there twice now, I feel like I have developed a relationship with the child I sponsor. That is something you don’t get with other programs out there. I know that the child I am sponsoring is getting food, clothing, and an education. Education is going to be key in giving the children of Haiti a strong future. I feel confident that Rosemond is getting the knowledge that he needs.”
Alex continues, “Also, it is affordable. I am a poor college student and am able to fund this monthly payment on my own. It has motivated me to be better at trying to figure out what things I need and what things I just want. If you cant afford it, split the cost with multiple people.”
Sponsoring a child is $35 a month, which provides school supplies, a uniform, and a meal everyday amongst other needs for the school. (Learn more about the sponsorship program here)
He concludes, “Most of all, I love this program for giving me the ability to make a difference in someone’s life. When I first got the chance to visit Rosemond’s house and deliver a care package, I knew that it was all worth it. I highly recommend the program to everybody. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.”
