5. WHAT IF THE CHILD HAS UNIQUE NEEDS?
Because our church partners work one-on-one with the children in our sponsorship program, they are poised to note significant changes in child well-being, behavior, or family situation and address these issues directly and quickly.
Our church partners have the ability to tap into additional support to help meet critical needs, which include opportunities to provide medical assistance (e.g., surgeries, transplants, casts, wheelchairs and canes, cancer treatment, etc.), extra food and nutritional supplements, income-generation training, emergency home repairs and disaster relief, access to clean and safe water, education assistance, and other necessities.
6. WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE SPONSOR?
Our one-to-one sponsorship model isn’t a funding mechanism for other programs; it facilitates relationships that change lives.
Our Child Sponsorship Program offers an opportunity to minister directly to a child living in extreme poverty. The sponsor's role isn't simply to help fund programs, it's to participate. That's why we emphasize correspondence, sponsor engagement and visiting the child, if possible.
We believe child sponsorship is an experience that can change both child and sponsor. When sponsors participate and involve themselves in the life of their sponsored child, the world becomes a better place for both.
