Jhennifer Stefania is a very active, loving and caring girl. One thing she likes the most in life is music. Her family is made up of her mother, father and two brothers. Both her parents are teachers, however, right now both of them are unemployed because they had a contract for one year teaching at one of the State’s schools but the contract expired and was not renewed. Both of Jhennifer’s parents have been unemployed since the month of June 2010 which has become the greatest difficulty for the family because they have to pay rent for the house where they live and also pay for school, health and food expenses. Jhennifer’s parents are very concerned about not being able to continue giving education to their children because of financial difficulties but hope that soon they can find a job.
Jhennifer Stefania is in 6th grade. Her favorite subjects are music, physical education and art. She wants to become a veterinarian and also a singer. Once her parents get a job she will take music and swimming lessons. Jhennifer’s, as well as her family’s dream is to have a house of their own and to enjoy good health to work and grow together as a family. Jhennifer hopes and prays she can continue her education because she believes that is the only way her country Colombia and the families that inhabit it can live a better life and have a better future.

22 SEP 2011Dear Sponsors, May God’s blessing always be with you. I’d like to tell you that this marking period went well for me and I’m continuing in the same school. Also I turned 12 last May. My mommy got a job seven hours from here so a cousin is taking care of me and my siblings. Also we’re already out on vacation for three weeks. I ask that you help me in praying for my mom and for my dad because they’ve endured nine months of unemployment and are in a lot of debt. I would like to know how you, my sponsers, are. At least to have a picture of you and even though I don’t know you I thank God that I have you as sponsors. Thank you for being my sponsors. Jhennifer Stefania T.K.M.=I love you a lot
