Maria has suffered much in her short life. After enduring abuse in many forms at the hands of her parents, she went to live with her grandmother. Eventually her grandmother became too ill to care for her, so Maria now lives at The Ark. She is an intelligent girl who is slowly learning how to behave appropriately and interact well with others, and we pray for continued progress.

Why should I sponsor?

As a child sponsor, you’ll be meeting the most pressing needs of a child. You’ll develop a meaningful relationship. And you’ll be able to teach the children in your life the importance of sharing with those in desperate need through your example.

You may give birth to a whole new generation of child sponsors!

And with Kids Alive International, you have the assurance of knowing that you are sponsoring through an organization with the highest financial and transparency standards of any child sponsorship organization in the world.

  • Receive personal letters and notes from your child and write back!
  • Get updates on your child’s progress in school and other activities
  • Enjoy contributing to special Treat Funds for Christmas and birthdays
  • Pray for your child and rest assured that he or she will learn about Jesus and have the chance to receive eternal life and hope
  • Plan a visit to meet your child
