Child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to help end child poverty. When you sponsor a child for $30 a month, you are not only immediately meeting the most basic needs of that child, but you are providing an education that will allow that child to go on to higher education or obtain employment in the future.
WHAT IS THE SPONSORSHIP EXPERIENCE LIKE WITH CHILDREN INCORPORATED?
The sponsorship relationship enables a sponsor to help support a child living in poverty through monthly contributions, and through the exchange of correspondence with a sponsored child, if the sponsor so desires. A sponsor’s friendship and encouragement are priceless to a child in such circumstances. Indeed, many children value the relationships they establish with their sponsors as much as they appreciate the financial support they receive from them. There is an opportunity to build a relationship between a sponsor and child that can be quite profound.
Our current monthly sponsorship rate is $30, and it goes toward providing basic necessities such as school supplies and fees, food, clothing, and access to healthcare, among other services.
Today, thanks to our supporters around the globe, we now have 235 affiliated sites in 20 countries, including the United States, which serve over 20,000 children annually.
What is Children Incorporated?
Children Incorporated provides basic necessities such as food, clothing, healthcare and educational support to children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad. These essentials, so often taken for granted, are vital to a child’s growth and success in school. Each year, we give thousands of children in need all over the world a chance at a better life.
Today, thanks to our supporters around the globe, we now have 235 affiliated sites in 20 countries, including the United States, which serve over 20,000 children annually. To date, our programs have provided over 300,000 children with desperately needed support.
Your sponsorship does more than just feed or clothe a child. For $30 a month, you not only help meet the basic and critical needs of a child, but you also make an investment in his or her future.
Our policy has always been to consider the needs of each sponsored child on an individual basis. We work closely with our volunteer coordinators at our affiliated sites, who are familiar with each individual circumstance and the needs of every child in their care.
Sponsorship donations are sent to our affiliated sites – community centers, childcare centers, and established schools – at the beginning of each month in the form of subsidy stipends. Our onsite volunteer coordinators use the funds to purchase basic and education-related items for children in our program to ensure that they have what they need to do their very best and succeed in school. Additionally, children benefit from the knowledge that a caring person is concerned for their well-being.
