Make a Difference in a Child’s Life Forever
Many of our children were rescued from horrible conditions. They were abandoned, abused and neglected most of their lives. But once they arrived to our Life Centers everything changes. They can heal, they feel hope, they believe in a future, and the children know what it’s like to be unconditionally loved. It takes a lot to change a child’s life forever, and we cannot do it without friends like you. One of the ways we change the course of a life is through Child Sponsorship.
Child Sponsors have the opportunity to communicate, financially support, and mentor our children. Unlike many other programs, as a Child Sponsor with Children’s Impact Network, you can build a lifelong, meaningful relationship with your child. As a Child Sponsor, you will receive two letters from your child each year. You will also have two opportunities to write back to your child and include photos to him or her. Each year we offer at least one Open Mission Trip team to Honduras and/or Bolivia. We love for our Child Sponsors to join us on these trips, and for many, visiting their child has become an anticipated annual tradition.
You can sponsor a child today. You can make a difference by connecting and supporting a child in Bolivia or Honduras. We would love for you to join our team.
- Letters: Each year your child will send you two letters, and you will be able to respond with your two letters. Your child will share a conversation with you, and you will have the opportunity to build a relationship with him/her.
- Monthly Support for Child Sponsors: $75 (this goes towards supporting and raising the child with all of his or her needs!)
- Number of Possible Sponsors Per Child: 4 (this is a very personal program, allowing for Child Sponsors to really connect with his/her child). 4 sponsors fully cover the cost of a child.
- Birthday and Christmas Gifts: Child Sponsors have the opportunity to gift $25 towards a birthday gift for their child and a Christmas gift. The month prior to your sponsored child’s birthday you will receive an email inviting you to send an additional $25. Your Sponsored Child will have an opportunity to pick out a birthday gift from you. We also ask for a voluntary $25 donation around Christmas to help provide for the children’s Christmas celebrations.
Sponsorship is a vital part of our children’s healing.
When you choose to sponsor a child, they subconsciously hear you say “I pick you”. For an abandoned child this may be the first time they have felt worthy of being chosen. From the beginning, sponsorship helps heal past wounds. When this is combined with regular written notes of encouragement – true healing occurs.
