As a part of our 20th anniversary celebration, Language Services Associates decided to make a contribution to the charity World Vision as one of the 20 charities we partnered with. Our involvement with World Vision was to sponsor Ofrine, an 8-year-old boy from Zambia, for a year. Our support provides him and his family with medicine, clothing and school supplies, among other things.

LSA recently received an annual progress report from Ofrine that gave us a sneak peek at his life in Zambia and an overview of his family, hobbies and progress in school! Since we began sponsoring him in February, Ofrine has advanced from 3rd grade to 4th grade, receiving 100 marks in math, science, English and handwriting.

Here are some other things we learned about Ofrine:

Favorite Hobbies:

  • Listening to music
  • Playing football

Favorite Day:

  • Christmas Day

Community Involvement:

  • Child rights advocate
  • Good news club
