Child Sponsorship Program
Change a life through Child Sponsorship! As a child sponsor, you can fight poverty in Nicaraguan communities while creating a lasting connection with a child. For just over $1 a day, child sponsors provide an underprivileged child in Nicaragua quality education, nutrition, and a supportive community.

The Child Sponsorship Experience
How Sponsorship Works
Child sponsors provide access to essential life resources that make an enormous difference for children in impoverished communities. With your help, your sponsored child will have access to quality education, nutritious foods, trained teachers, after-school classes, and a supportive school community. Our holistic approach involves children’s parents and teachers in the solution to create sustainable change.

What You Can Do As a Sponsor
Communication between sponsors and children is encouraged to build a relationship. As part of the program, we’ll send you a Back to School Letter and a card with an updated photo each year. We encourage sponsors to write additional letters, as often as you choose. Sponsored children love hearing from you, and they will respond to any letters you send.

Give a Gift
We have designed special gift packages for sponsors who would like to give something extra to their sponsored children. Your gifts will also give your sponsored child the ability to share with the entire classroom.
You are welcome to visit your sponsored child in Nicaragua! We encourage sponsors to make a personal connection with their sponsored child. Contact us directly to plan your visit or to learn more.
