  • Your current payment status
  • Your child’s photo, date of birth, and grade in school
  • Any other recent updates we’ve received about your child

“Thank you for the friendly correspondence you send. It’s nice to be treated like a friend and not just another sponsor. It truly means a great deal to us. Thanks again for the wonderful work you do to reach children around the world” – A sponsor since 2002

Some sponsors like to donate extra for the home where their sponsored child lives. Your gift goes directly to the home where your child resides or to any other home that you designate in a note at checkout.

She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.
