I heard from Compassion that he had to do grade 5 again to improve his studies. By the time he completes Compassion, he will most likely be grade 11. When children write my plan for tomorrow every year, I heard they set a goal to achieve their dream. Seeing how my child is progressing in school and the reality is that without any financial help, he will not be able to go to university. When he does my plan for tomorrow, does Compassion let him write what he wants to be although reality is nearly impossible? If he wants to be an engineer, he needs to study until 28 years old. And I am worried that he is not doing well in school since he needs to repeat grade 5 again. I want to know how my plan for tomorrow activity is being beneficial to my child. As for now, it seems like it will be a challenge for him yo be an engineer seeing how he is doing in school and also financial problem.
If it seems impossible in reality then does Compassion staff tell children the truth or ask them if they are interested in something else? How does my plan for tomorrow currently working for my child Wogayehu Demilew?
If he is willing to study hard and really want to be an engineer then I am willing to help him with university tuition fee in the future. But I have not told him as I dont want to promise anything yet. Also, he is still in high school when he grsduates from Compassion program.
