HERE SIERRA LEONE, PEOPLE WORK

VERY HARD AND MAKE VERY LITTLE.

I MET A YOUNG MAN NAMED DENNIS

WHO IS AN EXTREMELY HARD WORKER.

DENNIS HAS BIG DREAMS.

DENNIS LIVED WITH HIS MOTHER

IN THIS SMALL HOUSE.

HIS FATHER ABANDONED THE FAMILY

WHEN HE WAS JUST A BABY.

THEY TRIED TO MAKE A LIVING BY

SELLING CHARCOAL FOR COOKING,

BUT THEY BARELY MADE 50 CENTS A DAY.

I HAVE TO BEG MY FRIENDS.

SHE COULDN'T PROVIDE FOR HER SON,

SO, SHE LET HIM MOVE INTO A

CHILDREN'S HOME.

SHE'S RIGHT DOWN THE STREET.

AT THE HOME, PASTOR JACOBS AND

HIS WIFE ARE GIVING CHILDREN

OPPORTUNITIES THEY CAN'T FIND

ANYWHERE ELSE.

HERE THEY HAVE FOOD AND PLACES

TO STUDY.

DENNIS WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GO

TO COLLEGE.

HE SAYS WHEN HE GROWS UP, HE

WANTS TO HELP PEOPLE AND TAKE

CARE OF HIS MOTHER.

IF WE COULD HELP YOUR MOM,

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP US HELP

HER?

REALLY.

WE KNEW H SHE COULDN'T KEEP

SELLING CHA CHARCOAL, SO DENNIS

HELPED US GIVE HER A NEW START.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANKS TO ORPHAN'S PROMISE,

DENNIS CAN LOOK FORWARD TO A

BRIGHT FUTURE WHILE STILL BEING

CLOSE TO HIS MOTHER.

AND SHE WILL BE ABLE TO RUN A

BUSINESS FROM HOME AND HAVE A

BETTER LIFE TOO.

BEFORE WE LEFT, WE HAD ONE LAST

LITTLE SURPRISE FOR DENNIS.

WE SAW THE KIDS PLAYING WITH AN

OLD, FLAT SOCCER BALL, SO WE

WENT OUT AND GOT THEM A NEW ONE.

[ SOUNDS OF CHILDREN PLAYING ]

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING

CHILDREN LIKE US.

THANKS TO YOU.
