One of my children I sponsor (in Ethiopia) will turn 22 in May 2019. I noticed that 22 is the maximum age for children in programs in Africa. Will she be too old after this upcoming birthday, or will that be on her 23rd birthday in 2020?

Depends on the center. Some will be on their 22nd birthday. Some sometime through the year. But the absolute last is their 23rd birthday.

Does your child profile show a projected completion date? One of mine (different country) shows her 22nd birthday.

Hi John! That's a great question. I'm happy to shed some light on the situation. :) Etafrahu is projected to graduate the program in May of this year, so right around her 22nd birthday. Sometimes, that date can fluctuate a little bit by a few months.
