In my video I will show before a child gets sponsored and after a child gets sponsored. I will talk about each event after it and tell the affects of them.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned that some people care for others more than themselves. If I were given the choice to go to Africa to help the Ebola crisis I would be afraid! They work tirelessly to make the world a better place.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I want other Canadians to know that you can't make a change if you don't try. The people at World Vision want to make a change and they do. Whereas if you make a change but with no heart it is just like trying to show that you're a good person but you're not. Lots of children out there aren't like me or you they have to fight to live.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I would say my life is A LOT BETTER. When I want food I go to the cupboard when the kids in my project want food they have to wait a long time for it. My life is all butterflies and bruises, their lives are all bombs and burns. Life isn't fair is what I hear, but in my view it should be a bit fairer.
