Education: Against All Odds  
Mathabo Nkoe, 13, a sponsored child in Lesotho, lost her father to AIDS. Now her mother is so weakened by AIDS that she is bedridden. Mathabo wakes up early to do chores before school and cook her own food, and she cares for her mother after classes end. “I will stick to my goal of attaining education, despite my mother’s illness,” she vows.
