Shelley first met Betty and her family in 2006 when they were living in a make-shift shelter with only three walls near the orphanage. Seeing such extreme poverty, Shelley befriended the family and made a decision to help them in any way she could. A Better Life for Kids currently sponsors Betty, her three brothers, Bernard, John, and Brite, and cousin, Rita, to attend school and also donates food and other supplies to her family on every visit to Ghana. A very special A Better Life for Kids donor has generously made the decision to support this family. This support allowed the family to relocate to a small village a few miles away from the orphanage and construct a traditional home which is much stronger and safer than the shelter they we using when Shelley first met them. This additional support also ensures that Betty,her brothers, and cousin will continue to be able to live with their parents despite their desperate situation. Betty is a very smart girl who is eager to go to school each day, and without this sponsorship would never have had the opportunity to do so.
