Would you like to make a difference in the life of a child living in Africa? With your financial assistance, you can help to provide water, food, education, health care and community to meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of a child otherwise condemned to a life of poverty.
When you sponsor a child, you will receive photographs, letters, or drawings from that child and see first hand how you've given a child the chance for a more promising, hopeful future. Sponsors are encouraged to build a relationship with their sponsored child by writing to each other on a regular basis. The love you provide through a simple letter may be the encouragement a struggling boy or girl needs to make it through another day. Read excerpts from some of the children's letters here:
Excerpts from Letters
Our sponsorship program is currently operating in Kenya, Sierra Leone, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
We accept two methods of payment: payment by check or online monthly subscription signup through PayPal. Basic sponsorship costs $30 USD per month and is used towards the cost of food or education for the child. Full sponsorship is $75 USD per month and covers the cost of food and partial or the complete cost of education. We encourage you to be faithful in your prayers and financial support and appreciate a minimum commitment of one year, although our prayer is that a lifetime commitment will be formed between you and your sponsored child. 90% of your donation goes directly to our African partners to care for the children and 10% is used for our administrative costs.
