Through the non-profit organization, Save the Children, the HGHS community is hoping to raise funds so that we can connect with children living in impoverished third world countries.
Connect With a Kid is an amazing way to support these children in any way we can. We find it critical that our school expands its borders to help those that don’t necessarily live in our area. To form a connection with these kids would inevitably make our members more aware of the world and the struggles kids our age face on a daily basis.
Connect With a Kid's first sponsored child is named Ancha. She is a 7-year-old girl from Mozambique. In her country, the average girl stays in school for 9 years, 87 out of 1,000 children die before their 5th birthday, and a parent earns an average of $2 a day. Ancha's dream is to become a teacher, and through our club, we hope to connect with her long enough to see her dreams come true.
