What is the sponsorship money used for? Child Sponsorships provide our children with quality shelter, three nutritious meals a day, education, healthcare, and spiritual development.

What is the difference between a Sponsorship and a Buddy Sponsorship? The Sponsorship Program directly impacts the life of a child, but will most likely be completed by an adult. The Buddy Sponsorship was created to encourage children to give back and help a Haitian child, allowing them to correspond through letters, drawings, photos, etc. resources on the importance of giving back by sponsoring the children and corresponding with them through exchange of letters, drawings, photos, etc. The Buddy Sponsorship allows the children to learn from each other and get a glimpse of life in a different culture.

How do I communicate with my child? Since there is no mail system in Haiti, all letters should be sent to our office in Atlanta. They will be hand delivered and translated by our staff. When the children write back, our staff will help with translation as well, if needed.
In your letters, please
· Encourage your sponsor child in their education and faith.
· Explain local holidays, family traditions, hobbies, cultural subjects
· Share information about your life and your family - but please be
careful when talking about material possessions.
· Do not include any personal contact information including phone
number, address, email address, social media links, or any other way that the child could contact you directly. This is for the protection of both parties.
