Vanance doesn't know anything about his parents. His older brother was trying to help care for him, but was unable and so BTCM stepped in to care for him. He struggles with a stutter but is a wonderful young man and enjoys washing dishes.
A note on the "3
sponsor" model you see here: As a child grows, naturally so does their financial need to cover school
costs, that is why it appears this child needs 3 sponsors. From birth through
primary school a child only needs one sponsor at $44. When this child enters
Secondary School that need will increase to $60-$88, another sponsorship level
will be opened and we will contact the current sponsor with this opportunity.
Then after Secondary School when the child progresses to a higher education
program the need will become $132, another sponsorship level will be opened and
again we will contact the current sponsor with that opportunity. If at any
point the current sponsor cannot increase, we will work to find an additional sponsor
to come alongside to help fill the financial need. Please let us know if you
have any questions about this model.
