Sponsored children: 22 of 23
2020 has been a year full of challenges for everyone, but especially for the most vulnerable: disadvantaged children.
This Christmas will most probably be different than other years, but you can bring stars to a child’s eyes by giving them the gift of education.
HOW DOES CHILD SPONSORSHIP WORK?
Meet your sponsored child
Once we receive your sponsorship form, we will send you a “Welcome Pack” with the picture of your sponsored child. You will also learn more about their family situation and how your sponsorship donations will help them to get an education.
Write your first letter
We all love receiving letters. Can you imagine that the letter you will write to your sponsored child is often the first letter they have ever received? A bond will grow between you and your child with the joy of letters.
What your sponsorship changes in their life
Children waiting to be sponsored are among the most disadvantaged children in the world. Sponsoring a child is giving them access to education, which allows them to start dreaming of a better future. Only education can break the cycle of poverty.
To all young poor people, I would like to say that efforts can overcome obstacles, but for that we need to engage, persevere and fight ignorance. We are born poor, we cannot help it, but poverty is not inevitable, education can get us out of it and restore our dignity.
