The young man with the big smile is Goodson, who loves to drum while the girls love to dance. Music and dance is a huge part of their culture and builds their confidence as they perform for others in the community. The Youth Center gives them these opportunities to grow in positive ways, staying away from the bad influences that surround them.

The girls are enjoying an opportunity to be together and sing and have fun. The older girls become good role models for the younger girls.

Any of these children would be thrilled with someone sponsoring them to go to school, for school uniforms, books, and money for more computers at the school. 100% of the donations go to the children or for equipment for the community to use at the Center such as computers, internet, and currently funding two latrines and showers for the community to use.
