What is the sponsoring program?

You can choose to sponsor one or more children with a monetary contribution. Your contribution will cover that child’s basic needs such as food, education, clothing, school supplies, and recreation.

Why sponsor a child?

This is a unique opportunity for you to get to know one child. You receive periodic updates, and you can exchange letters and token gifts. You will also receive a donation receipt from us that you can apply to your taxes.

If you would like to become a sponsor just follow these three easy steps:

  1. Fill the form
