Child Sponsorship focuses on developing orphans and vulnerable children into responsible Christian adults, empowering them to achieve their God given potential as well as modeling them into agents of transformation in their communities. It is an opportunity for a child sponsor to build a lifelong friendship with a child in poverty, one that alters the course of a child’s life and that of his or her family.
About The Child Sponsorship Program
What is Child Sponsorship?
Child Sponsorship is a program that connects a specific needy child to a sponsor to support them in their education and Health care until they are 18 years. All the children in the Child sponsorship Program are either living with their single mothers or grand parents after losing both their parents. When FoHA finds a child in need, we bring them to New Hope Academy to start school as they wait for sponsors. Also share their pictures Here and ask sponsors to chose among them, the child they would like to sponsor. When a sponsor signs up, he/she commits to sending a monthly gift of $30 to his/her child and this caters for a child’s school tuition, Health care, a school uniform, a pair of shoes, a meal while at school and also when the child is part of the sponsorship program, he/she gets an opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and to grow in the knowledge and the fear of God.
How do i Get Started?
To get started, choose among the children Here . Write down the details of the child (ren) you would like to sponsor and then click on the Sponsor Me button for the child you would like to sponsor. You will then be led to a form where you will be asked to fill in the name (s) of the child(ren) you have chosen as well as a few details about yourself. Your details enable us to know who you are and also to contact you about your child (ren). When you decide to sponsor a child, you commit to sending a monthly gift of $30 as support for your sponsored child. As a new child sponsor with FoHA, you will receive an updated photo and information about your sponsored child and a first letter from your child telling you more about his/ her family and the way of life in their community.
How long should my child sponsorship last?
Child Sponsorship Program offers you the opportunity to stay with your sponsored child for a number of years, usually through the school year until when the child reaches the age of 18. However, when you are through with your sponsored child, FoHA offers you another opportunity of picking on a Nursing Student to support for a period of 3 years until they graduate.
You can choose to Sponsor a Nursing Student for 3 years even when you are sponsoring a child.
As a sponsor we ask you to:
Write to your Child
Sponsorship won’t only change your child’s life – it will change yours, too. We strongly encourage you to write to your sponsored child. Letters are a great way to encourage your sponsored child and let them know that someone cares about them. Tell them about yourself, your family and ask about their lives. You will receive at least two letters a year from your sponsored child; many letters will contain pictures drawn by your child, an annual child photo and progress report so you can track your child’s development.
Note: You can Upload your Letter, Pictures or any files for your sponsored Child Here
Pray For Your Sponsored Child
Praying for your sponsored child is one of the most important opportunities you have as a sponsor. Use the photo and information about your child as a reminder to pray for them. Pray for your child’s physical, emotional, and spiritual health plus that of their families. As you begin communicating with your child, you will get to know more specific needs for which you can pray.
Commit to support your child Monthly or Quarterly
Child sponsorship is a monthly commitment to support your sponsored child with a monthly gift of $30. Each of our sponsors is encouraged to send their children’s support monthly or quarterly for the daily needs of their sponsored children.
Send A Gift
We encourage you to send gifts to your sponsored child especially during their Birthdays, Christmas seasons and other days as you wish. Some gifts may seem very small to you but they mean a lot to a child and provide tangible evidence to a child living in poverty that they are loved and consider themselves blessed to have a sponsors who cares for them.
*Please Note: You can chose to sponsor a child with a monthly gift of $30 and/or Sponsor New Hope Academy with a monthly gift of $150 to support 5 children.
The cost of sponsorship per month is $30 or $60 for double sponsorship
