Stories Unfolding


When it comes down to it, a child needs love and support. They need a tender hug, a pat on the shoulder, someone to laugh with and to cry with. They need food in their bellies and a safe space to dream. They need someone to believe in them and to fight for them.

Each one of the children in our homes was living a life that lacked these forms of nurturing before coming to the home. But our leaders are dedicated to providing all of these things every day for them. These children are their children, and they are invested in their growth and transformation.

Connecting sponsors to children is an important piece to this puzzle of transformation. The financial support of sponsorship is given to the homes so that they can be enabled to continuing their work of helping children in need. But the support goes beyond financial. Becoming a sponsor is going low and reaching out a hand to a hurting child and communicating that they are special and important. It is connecting to a child in varying degrees and believing in them when most of the world has turned away from them.

Although every sponsorship relationship is different, and some last longer than others, sponsorship is a rewarding opportunity to pour life into a child. And this act of love has influence far beyond the small window that sponsorship provides. Whatever story unfolds for the child, the support of a compassionate individual will always remain a part of that story. They will carry the knowledge and remnants of that relationship wherever it is that they go.

Living in a world that is surrounded by so many needs, our hearts always have a chance to break for the hurting. Becoming a sponsor is an opportunity to act on that compassion. To take one step forward in making the world a better place. We want to give you an opportunity to step into this relationship. If you are feeling like it’s time to respond to the pain of the world and would like an easy way to do that, there will be some sponsorship opportunities below.

If you are already a current sponsor, but you have seen the benefits and rewards of sponsorship and would like to sponsor an additional child, you can just follow the steps of sponsoring a child, and we will add it in our system.

And if you are not ready to become a sponsor, but would still like to respond, take a look at our ‘How Can I Help’ page to find some more opportunities.
