TSN’s James Duthie meets his sponsored child

See how much a sponsorship can mean in the life of a child and their family

By Brianne Binelli, digital content manager, Canada


TSN’s James Duthie and his daughter, Grace, we’re nervous and excited to meet their sponsored child, Yideneku, and her family on their trip to Ethiopia this past winter.

“One guy from Ottawa can make a difference in a child’s life halfway across the world,” James told us during the visit, adding, “that warms my heart.”

Children Believe offers sponsorship in six countries around the world, giving children access to education so they can live and dream of a brighter future. It’s that much more special when a sponsor writes or visits them.

James realized the value of sponsorship in a child’s life when he saw his family photo prominently displayed in Yideneku’s home.

Watch this special visit below, and sponsor a child today.
