1-2-3 Sponsor is here! And we are excited to see what God will do in the next 12 days for waiting children.

This month, our goal is to add 123 new sponsorships to give more children around the world an opportunity realize their potential. From September 10 – 21, we will be sharing the names and faces of children in our care who need the love of Christ in tangible ways.

Would you sponsor a child and spread the word that children are waiting to be sponsored?

What does child sponsorship cost?

Sponsoring a child makes it possible for them to receive ongoing care in the form of food, clothing, medical care, and shelter–as well as Christian training, discipleship, and a quality education to provide a foundation for their future. All of this and more is possible with a monthly sponsorship starting at $34 a month.

What difference does child sponsorship make?

Child sponsorship has independent research on its side. A *2013 study found that children who are sponsored are:

  • 27% to 40% more likely to finish secondary school
  • 50% to 80% more likely to complete a university education
  • 14% to 18% more likely to have salaried jobs as adults
  • 30% to 75% more likely to be community leaders
  • 40% to 70% more likely to be church leaders

 

 

What does child sponsorship mean to a child?

Everything.

Bottom line: God doesn’t call you to help all 153 million orphans worldwide, but you can help ONE. And for that one child, you can change the world.
