In May 2019 nine young adults graduated from the BIZAA College of Technology and Nursing in Imo State, Nigeria. They never dreamed that sponsors like you would help get them off the streets and into college.
Watch their powerful graduation ceremony in Nigeria and hear from the Nigerian staff, teachers, and graduates on how our child sponsors have changed the course of a small community that once had no hope for a better future.
