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.

  • 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
