Why Sponsor a Child?
When you choose to sponsor a child, we’ll connect you personally with the boy or girl who will know your name and cherish the thought that you care about them. Your support of $35/ a month can change the course of the child’s life and create opportunities for them that didn’t exist before.
Your support allows us to provide a holistic approach to care both in and out of the classroom. Sponsorship has been proven to be one of the most effective methods of tackling spiritual, physical and socioeconomical poverty in children and families.
Amparo’s goal is to see lives transformed through the love of God by providing access to quality education, Christian discipleship while addressing physical and emotional needs. We realize it’s crucial to involve the entire family in this process, which is why we encourage the parents of our sponsored children to be involved in our parent support program to create a healthy family environment.
Through our programs we work with your sponsored child on an individual basis and are able to assess the basic needs that are specific to him or her. These include;
• Educational supplies required to attend school
• Access to Afterschool Programs;
o Escuela Biblica – Bible Discipleship School for ages 7-18
o Reforzamiento – Help with homework to reinforce education
o Youth Activities – Special events, outings, sports
• Access to Medical Care
• Parental support programs – Family Involvement
Choose a child and sign up for a monthly pledge of a little more than $1/ a day.
Engaging with your Sponsored Child
Once you become a sponsor, you can communicate with your child by sending an email to; firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your child’s name in the subject line.
When we receive your email, the letter, photos and any other documents will be printed, translated and given to your sponsored child. We’ll also translate, scan and email all letters and photos the child would like to send to his or her sponsor.
Communication with your sponsored child can be as frequent as you like! All letters are delivered by hand, so the process could take a few months between sending a letter and receiving a response. For example, Mango, is a 2 day journey each way and only visited monthly for 8 days.
