Children in the child sponsorship program are between the ages of 5 and 21. We allow children who started school late to stay in the program until age 21. When you choose a child to sponsor, that child will remain in the program as long as they remain in school and in the community, or until the community graduates from the program. Your monthly donation helps to provide for that child during that month. If you choose to stop your sponsorship at any time, just let us know. We’ll find another sponsor. If the child graduates from the program, ages out, leaves the community or the community graduates, we can help you choose another child to sponsor.
