- It’s affordable. For less than a cup of coffee a day, you can sponsor a child. Our minimum donation starts at $1/day, making it one of the most affordable sponsorship programs around.
- It makes a huge difference! For this price, you are providing educational , food, clothing, access to clean water and housing. Money typically goes a long way in these countries.
- It doesn’t just impact one child. Even though you’re sponsoring one child, there are often wider community benefits as well. Child sponsorship also benefits future generations, as any child who is removed from abject poverty is able to better provide for their own children when the time comes. You are ending the cycle of poverty for that child and their offspring.
- You don’t just give money, you give hope. The money makes a difference, but the knowledge that there’s someone who cares enough to invest in them means a lot to a child. In the harshest of living conditions, such hope makes a difference.
- It gives your children a different perspective. I don’t want my children growing up unaware of how other children live. Sponsoring a child as a family gives them the chance to learn more about the conditions of other countries and hopefully will assist in developing them into good global citizens who want to make a positive contribution to those less fortunate when they grow up. (... and perhaps a little more appreciative of what they do have here!)
- It’s something. Sometimes, the statistics of world poverty are daunting and with over a billion people living in appalling conditions, it’s difficult to see how we can make a difference. You may not be able to change the world, but you can change the world for one child, and that in itself is a very big thing!
- It feels good. Doing things just because they feel good is rarely a sufficient reason to do them, but in this case, it’s quite justified. It does feel satisfying to sponsor a child in a developing country, knowing the difference you are making, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of.
Alexin, pictured below is proof of the need and the reward. She was admitted to Mogra, very malnourished. Today, she is thriving!
