Children Around the World

I typically advocate for Honduran children who attend the same projects as my own sponsored children, but am so delighted to advocate for these three precious children from around the world.  Their sweet faces won my heart!

Princella – Ghana

I think this sweetie was very aptly named…  Princella is a little princess!  She lives in a forested community in Ghana with both her dad and mom, and she is one of two children in the home.  3 1/2 year old Princella helps in the home by caring for children, and her favorite activities are singing and walking.  She attends kindergarten as well as church activities and Bible class.  Her birthday is December 29, 2011.

Princella’s dad is sometimes employed as a farmer, and her mom is sometimes employed.  Most adults work as market traders and earn the equivalent of $10/month.  Common health problems in her area include malaria and typhoid fever, and the regional diet consists of maize, beans, chicken, fish, bread, cassava, plantains, and rice.  The spoken language is Fante.
