Start sponsoring a Child Today:
Your tax-deductible contribution of just $70 per YEAR connects your child with a loving, church-based program. Your sponsorship opens a door of opportunity to children who have known little else but poverty. The commitment you make allows Pastor Luis and his staff to love and encourage the children. Each year you will receive an updated picture of your sponsored child. Opportunities are also available for sponsors to travel with a team in January each year to meet your sponsored child.
Can $70 per Year Really Make a Difference?
Sometimes it seems impossible that $70 would keep a child from getting an education but many of these children’s parents are farm workers or common laborers. The average wage for those types of jobs are between $135 to $225 per month. The minimum wage for farm workers is less than $5.00 per day based on a 10 hour day.
What Does $70 Provide?
What if my Sponsored Child Leaves the Program?
There are times when families relocate in the hopes of finding a better job. Parents may also withdraw the sponsored child from school so that the child can assist in supporting the family. Should your sponsored child leave the program, you will be notified and given the opportunity to sponsor another child.
