10,000 Stories to Tell and Celebrate
We have a bold goal — help 10,000 families out of poverty over the next 10 years. But the only reason these numbers matter is because of the people behind them. And we want to tell their stories. All 10,000 of them.
Each story is a person worth celebrating. Stories like Levieux’s.
“My life was trying to survive day by day.” Levieux was born in the Congo. When he was a child, military rebels raided his city and invaded his home. His father was killed and the rest of the family was forced to flee. Only two years later, his mother died suddenly of high blood pressure. He lived with his older sister until they were all forced to flee to a refugee camp. Levieux remembers his sister celebrating their birthdays with soda and cake, but said they wouldn’t follow any traditions of their ethnicity out of fear of persecution. When he was 12, Levieux was resettled as a refugee in the United States and became a part of our International Foster Care Program. Today, he is working on a computer security degree and says accomplishing his career goals and being a good citizen are his top priorities for the future.
