I Got This!

Six-year-old Genesis might look a little unsure about her first day of school, but she’s happy to go! “I want to start classes right away and use the school supplies I was given,” she says. Her parents didn’t have the money to buy her supplies. But Genesis is sponsored in Compassion’s program, and she got everything she needed to start school!
