Your Sponsorship Impact: Empowering Communities Over a Decade
We structure our programs in partnership with the community with the goal of working together for a period of 8 to 10 years. This long-term commitment allows us to thoroughly assess the community’s needs and deliver successful sponsorship programs that achieve lasting results.
When our teams transition out of an area, we work to carefully transfer ownership of our programs to local community members. This allows us to move on to help girls and boys in other communities, while ensuring the successes we achieved for children continue.
Changes with Your Sponsored Child
We work in real communities, with real families, often in difficult situations. We strive to provide a safe environment for children to learn, grow and play, but sometimes situations change. Children must leave our programs – for example, because the family has moved to a new home in another community.
If your child leaves our sponsorship program, your sponsorship will be moved to a new child, so that you can continue helping children in need. You’ll also have the opportunity to send a goodbye letter to your previously sponsored child. Saying goodbye can be hard, but a letter can help bring a sense of closure to your relationship and let your child know that your care doesn’t end with the program.
