Hi! My sponsored child, Sulika, will be turning 17 this December. I was thinking this morning about how old she's getting (I've sponsored her since 2008) and how close she is getting to be college aged. It put me to thinking, I wonder if she will get the chance to go to college?? I've always thought, through reading her letters, that she seems to be a very bright and motivated girl, and if she does want to go to college in the future, I need to start saving now so I can give her a nice monetary gift at that time. So I do have several questions: If she does get the opportunity to go to college, will Compassion notify me, or will I only know if she tells me in a letter? Also, is it appropriate to ask her in a letter if she is thinking about going to college? And lastly, I'm curious to know if there are any statistics as to what percentage of sponsored kids do move on to college or some kind of vocational school after their regular schooling? Thanks!!!
