Our students’ story
Raising our children
We’d like to introduce you to one of our future stars. Lucy Atta is 14 years old and has never had an opportunity to go to school. She is the oldest of six children, and both of her parents are unemployed and lives in a deplorable condition. Everyday after school, she sells charcoal to assist her parents in putting food on the table. Even through these obstacles, Lucy still smiles every time she shares her hope of becoming an Oprah Winfrey to her community and hopefully the world. With the help of our Legacy Partners, Lucy is receiving an education that will give her the tools she needs to realize her dreams and leave an even larger legacy. She is not alone.
We currently support 340 children who all share a story like hers. Would YOU be willing to partner in building and maintaining these legacies? This is an opportunity to give our sons and daughters the chance to learn, a safe place to play, and the opportunity to prepare for their futures.

Carmen & Lynn's story
Five years ago, at the Annie T Doe Memorial Foundation Gala, my husband and I were captured by one particular portion of the night’s presentation. A photo was shared of two children who were sitting on concrete blocks in one of the Academy’s classrooms. These two children were not in uniform and were not being sponsored. The determination of these two children, Thomas and Josephine, to bring concrete blocks each day and sit quietly, showed they wanted to learn. This story tugged at my husband and mine’s heart. We wanted to fulfill their dream of an education and a Christian based one.
For a small fee of $300 per academic school year per child, my husband and I have made this dream a reality. Thomas and Josephine are provided with school uniforms, book bags, school supplies, lunch and a Christian education.
For less than a $1 a day, you can make a child’s dream come true. Join my husband (Lynn) and I in sponsoring a child’s education.
“I will be sharing stories from the children attending the school about how someone has affected their life. That person could be you.”
