Leaving Poverty Behind
From the age of 10, Janlinon worked as a farm laborer. He would earn $2 a day working 6 to 8 hours in the hot sun.
“We would receive our salary every week. Each time I received mine, I gave it to my parents to help in our expenses,” Jan says.
Then World Vision’s community programs started to bear fruit for Jan . His parents are benefiting from economic development programs and they are willing and able to supported Jan’s education.
“I’ve always wanted to become a teacher,” says Jan. “It is my way to raise my family from poverty and I can also help other children in their education.”
“World Vision gives me hope. Now, that I am closer to my dream, I will continue to work hard. I will not waste my education by working back to the plantations,” he says.
