How do I communicate with my child?

The most effective way of communicating with your child is by mailing letters to each other. These children live in a remote rural area with no internet or telephone connection. Our staff will assist your child in responding to your letters.

Can I send material gifts to my child?

Not at all! While it may seem like a good idea with the best of heart-felt intentions, sending material gifts not only get lost on the way here, but attract huge taxes & duties that sometimes exceed the cost of the gift. Besides your regular sponsorship contribution, you may send monetary gift to your sponsored child to commemorate special occassions such as birthdays, christmas, performance merit etc to purchase a specific gift locally.

All our dealings are conducted with lot of transparency, honesty and accountability. We have needs "supply and distribution" form that we use to deliver goods and services to our sponsored children. Each time a child collects an item or receive any form of service such as healthcare it has to be signed by relevant official.Also, our financial books are always open for inspection at anytime.

What if I do not send my sponsorship money in time?

We do encourage sponsors to send their sponsorship money on time. However, you may notify us should you anticipate delay in sending your sponsorship.

How long does a child sponsorship last?

The length of time that a sponsorship last remains at sponsor's will. Typically, we assume that the sponsorship continues until the child reaches 18 years or become employable. We hope that sponsors will commit themselves for at least one year.
