"I Am Not Forgotten" - TJ's Story

"I Am Not Forgotten" - TJ's Story

Tengetsile, “TJ”, has dreamt of being a pilot for as long as she can remember.

We met TJ when she was in the second grade. She began coming to our CarePoint because she was hungry.
Shortly after her ninth birthday, she discovered her HIV positive status after a facilitator initiated a hospital visit for her. TJ says, “I was angry. I didn’t want to accept my status and was even more afraid that my status would upset my father. I think for a long time he believed I would die, so he didn’t bother to reach out to me or to become involved in my life.”

Because of TJ’s illness and family circumstances, we moved her to our I Am Not Forgotten home. One of the HIV positive facilitator’s at the home encouraged TJ to look beyond her illness.

“She changed my perspective and helped me to see myself how God sees me. That gave me freedom,” TJ shares.

She goes on to say, “Because of my Children’s Cup sponsor, Christy, my life has changed entirely. I have not only learned how to serve in the church, but I am privileged to lead other children at the CarePoint, many of whom have similar stories like mine.”


Today, TJ is equipped and empowered to dream of a future beyond her diagnosis. She is 19 years old and well on her way to, and quite literally is, flying toward her ultimate dream—becoming a pilot.

Thank you for inspiring hope and empowering world changers in Latin America and Southern Africa to reach for the sky.


It’s our greatest privilege to share the transformation that has occurred in and through the life of TJ and children similar to her solely because of people like you.

Some children are in difficult enough circumstances that we move them into our I Am Not Forgotten homes to receive 24/7 care. Many of them are HIV positive.
