How much does sponsoring a child cost?
We ask for a minimum commitment of £15 per month to help achieve lasting results through your sponsorship. But you can donate more than that if you are able and can make your donations monthly, quarterly, or annually.
Is sponsoring a child like adopting a child?
No it isn’t. The child you sponsor is cared for in one of our centres and in their eyes you play a very important part in their life. Through letters and cards you may send, you can inspire and encourage them. It’s amazing how messages of hope can boost children’s self-esteem as well as showing them love.
How do I donate?
You can donate in a variety of ways and by whichever one is most convenient for you. The easiest is probably by standing order so you automatically donate monthly, quarterly, or annually. You can also donate by cheque or credit/debit card. Alternatively, you can make your regular donations to us by Charity Aid Foundation account cheque. If you need any support choosing how to donate, just get in touch.
How long can I sponsor my child for?
You can sponsor your child for as long as you like. We hope your link with your sponsored child will continue for a number of years. But, if your circumstances change, you can withdraw your support at any time.
Can I sponsor more than one child?
Can I sponsor a child with my friends and work colleagues?
Yes, of course you can. We have many schools, church groups and businesses that sponsor a child. If you decide to sponsor as part of a group, just give us with a contact person for all our and your sponsored child’s communications.
How often will I hear from the child I sponsor?
When you first sponsor, you will receive an introductory letter and picture, and you will be sent regular updates throughout the year. Through this unique and personal connection you can see for yourself what is happening in their lives and where they live local centre.
