What kind of jobs did formerly Compassion-sponsored children obtain as adults?

“Essentially we’re talking about a one-third greater probability of being a ‘white collar’ worker in adulthood. Now, what’s interesting about that is we don’t see high prevalence of formerly Compassion-sponsored children moving into professions like becoming doctors or lawyers or high-paid businessmen. Most of the Compassion-sponsored children move into service industries. A lot become teachers, nurses, health workers.

“We think the reason for that may be that there aren’t a lot of role models in these villages for lawyers and doctors and high-paid businesspeople. The role models that they see in front of them, because they obtain more education, are teachers and Compassion staff and so forth. So, that’s what they want to be when they grow up.”
