As these children have been living on the streets, they do not have even
the smallest of luxuries. Your support would not just be for
schooling, but the entire life of the child and would provide:
The home will be a safe home (no violence, no drugs, no abuse, etc) where
they will be welcomed with open arms and open hearts. The goal is to
get them sponsored so they can further their education and live an
independent life afterwards. The home is for kids on school holiday,
kids that go to trade school, and kids hoping to be sponsored soon.
Within the home, we will do basic health care as well as some
education in both lifestyle (crafts, gardening, cooking, etc) and basic class studies.
We hope to connect the kids back with their families if they desire and we deem the situation safe.
Cost will vary from child-to-child, as each child is different and will need different schooling, medical care, and housing.
Cost will range from 200$USD – 600$USD a term, with the first term being on the higher end.
To know more about the individual pricing for a kid and how much you will be spending each term go to “cost breakdown”.
Sponsoring a child is a big commitment, as you will be positively changing the child’s life forever by providing a much-needed education and comfortable lifestyle. Because many of our boys would not be able to have this opportunity without the help of a sponsorship, they are extremely grateful for any help they receive. We do not require that the sponsors have a personal relationship with their sponsor child; however, many sponsors do choose to help encourage the child by having that kind of relationship. Video calling, letter writing, and exchanging videos are all means of exhibiting that the boys have support from their sponsor both financially and emotionally. Many of our boys enjoy being able to show their sponsor their progress in school and emotionally by sharing their school reports, drawings, or simply talking about their daily activities that give them joy. Although we support and encourage a relationship between sponsors and their sponsor boy, we understand that this may not be practical for everyone and appreciate any help. If you would like to remain anonymous or are unable to have said relationship, please just let us know what type of relationship/connection you are hoping to have with your sponsor child.
