Now, thanks to World Vision, Keota is back in school, earning good grades and helping her little sisters with their studies." . "Her response? On top of providing for her three children — and, now, three grandchildren (Mutinta, 4, Andasoni, 2, and Tricia, 1) — she has taken on the role of volunteer caregiver for orphans and vulnerable children in her village, visiting their guardians to encourage them to send their children to school, teaching children and youth about how HIV is transmitted, and educating them about safe practices. Indeed, Emily, and volunteers like her, serve on the frontlines of the campaign to create “healthy villages.”

World Vision provides each caregiver with a kit filled with washcloths, anti-fungal cream, oral re-hydrants, water purifiers, and more to take on home visits. These kits are donated by companies and churches in the United States and packed by church volunteers, who insert notes of encouragement."

2." Fifteen-year-old Mao* has been driven by a painful memory since she was young.
Unlike other children, Mao didn’t go to school for long. She dropped out in second grade because of her family’s poverty. Moreover, family debt pressured Mao into the sex trade in order for her to earn money to pay for what her family owed.

“My family is extremely poor,” Mao explains. “When I was younger, my family did not have shelter to live in…after this, my family moved and lived on other people’s land, but we needed to pay [U.S. $200] per year.

At dawn the next day, two women waited for Mao in front of a pagoda on the outskirts of the capital city of Phnom Penh. The woman instructed Mao to mask her face so no one would recognize her.

Ashamed, she did as they told her. Together with the women, she traveled to Battambang, Cambodia, to a hotel, where her virginity was sold to a man for U.S. $200.

Mao immediately sent $150 to her mother to pay her debt, but did not let her know where the money had come from.

Mao’s final client happened to be a foreigner, a man who was being investigated and tracked by the Cambodian Department of Anti-Human Trafficking and Minor Protection. This investigation led to Mao’s rescue from the perpetrator. Following her rescue, Mao went to World Vision’s trauma recovery center for physical and emotional care.

Now, Mao dreams of becoming a teacher. “I want to be a Khmer teacher, so I can read and teach other people to read,” she concludes." 1) Sponsor a child- you can sign up to send money, buy animals, and send gifts to a child you "adopt" into your family
