Leah Ganton belongs to the B'laan trice of Polomolok, South Cotabato in the Phillippines. She lost her mother due to illness and her father is illiterate and unable to provide for their large family. She was sent along with her sister Girlie to the Haven of Hope Orphanage. Leah is currently studying at Holy Cross Academy and hopes to one day become a teacher.
"I will be very grateful for whatever help you can extend to me."—Leah Ganton
With your help, we can send Leah to school for another year! Your donation will help provide her with a year of tuition, transporation, uniforms and school supplies.
Update From the Field
