What is sponsorship and why is it important?

The sponsorship relationship enables a donor to help support a needy child by means of monthly contributions, and through the exchange of correspondence with a sponsored child, if the donor so desires.  A sponsor’s friendship and encouragement is priceless to a child in such circumstances. Indeed, many children value the relationships they establish with their sponsors as much as they value the financial support they receive.  There is an opportunity to build a relationship between 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 health care, among other services.
