Sophia is a 7th grader at Kenwood Trail Middle School has been hosting annual hot cocoa stands to raise donations for the kids of Swaziland, Africa for 6 years now. She started when she was 8 years old and heard about the kids from a family friend who was about to move with her husband & kids to Swaziland to be missionaries. The money she raises go to an organization called Children’s Cup based out of Louisiana and their goal is to help the kids in the country by meeting their most basic needs. They source food from a local company, Feed My Starving Children to give the kids one meal each day when they visit the care points in their community. They also provide preschool for the young kids and medical care as well.
