Thoughts on teaching, technology, learning and life in an era of change.
Our sponsored child
October 15th, 2008

The little boy in the foreground above is Sandagdorj. He is pictured with his family. My wife and I have been sponsoring Sandagdorj since 2001 via World Vision Singapore. Sandagdorj lives in Mongolia and via our sponsorhsip we have assisted Sandagdorj with his education. His father is unable to work.

We receive regular correspondence and updates from World Vision. The updates include notes and drawings from Sandagdorj and photographs as well. Shao Ping and I have watched Sandagdorj grow up during the last 7 years.

I thought I would take the chance to share with my readers as part of Blog Action Day which this year is focused on poverty. You still have time to participate.

    How wonderful to sponsor a child like this over the years and to receive a visible reminder of the real needs in the world. It’s also a great reminder for children in the family to establish this emotional bond.

    Thanks for the reminder of Blog Action Day with a focus on poverty. You have provided me with the subject of my post tonight.

    Thanks Paul and Ken. It just seemed a natural thing to do. My wife and I have been hoping to have a family for years but no success. IUI, IVF and ICSI have not been successful. Frustrating, saddening and stressful. Perhaps one day.
