This Spring, Change a Life:

Sponsor a Child

We take a holistic approach when walking alongside children and their communities.

With a monthly commitment of $41, you will:

  • Directly provide financial support for an individual child’s unique practical needs, including school tuition, nutrition, medical care, etc.
  • Enhance community programs that promote the development of healthy minds and bodies while strengthening a child’s spiritual development.
  • Equip local leaders to develop and promote community integration that emphasizes inclusion regardless of ability. Child Sponsorship Programs exist in four countries: Ethiopia, Guatemala, Haiti and Nicaragua
