Family Sponsorship

Friend a Family. Prevent Orphans. Show Love. Extend Hope.

Our desire is to see vulnerable children and their families stay together AND embrace hope in all of life.

To see this happen, we believe that Family Sponsorships play a key role. Sponsorship not only means that financial resources are available for a family, but it also means that families are empowered through loving support, prayer and encouragement that makes them feel human again…as they are remembered by God and by others.

Here is what your monthly partnership will help provide:

- 2 Nutritious meals per day plus additional nutritional support for underweight children.

- A clean, safe environment for children to be cared for during the day by loving, caring caregivers.

- Early Childhood Education tailored for younger children and formal Schooling for older ones.

- Health care for Mothers and Children.

- Special care for families who are underweight, HIV+, TB patients or who have disabilities.

- Clothing and Hygiene materials.

- Social Worker visits to each child and his or her family on a consistent basis.

- Relational sharing of Jesus and His love demonstrated on a daily basis.

- Supplemental food to help provide better nutrition at home.

- Provision of household supplies and or house repair

- Freedom for parents to work to help promote sustainability while their children are cared for in a safe place.

- Job Training, Education, Micro-savings, Micro-grants and Income Generating Activity creation 

- A safety net for parents who are terminally ill to make sure their children are cared for.

- Opportunities for parents to invest in the project themselves, thereby using the assets that God has given them, which in turn empowers them.

- Community education in parenting, HIV/AIDS and sanitation

- Community development projects in literacy, children’s reading room and micro-enterprise

- The movement towards sustainability for families.

It costs $136 per child per month to have a child in the project.  It could be that your family has the means to fully sponsor a family. In other cases, there may be a small group or a church or a Sunday School class or an office willing to do so.

Or, for $34 / month we will do a shared sponsorship. This means that 4 individuals/groups will together sponsor a family. You will all still get updates and have an opportunity to share with the family and build relationship with them.

Here are the families whom we currently are looking for sponsors for!

FAQs

How much of the support will go toward administration and salaries?

First, more than 97% of the money you provide for sponsorship will come to Ethiopia directly to the project. Less than 3% is what the credit card company charges us for administrating the credit card…but if you give by check we get 100% of your donation to put it to use.

Our costs in the US as well as for Missionaries living in Ethiopia are covered by other generous donors as well as volunteers who give of their time, money and energy, so that your sponsorship dollars can go directly to the project itself.

The monthly sponsorship income will provide what is necessary for the daily operations of the Day Care Center and Family Support. This includes facilities rentals, 41 employees, all supplies, utilities, food, education, clothing, etc…and administration. We estimate our 3 year administration costs to be a mere 20% of our total budget.

Will this work like other sponsorship programs where I get updates and can send letters?

Absolutely! At first we will be committing to send you a photo, at least 2 updates per year, and the ability to send 3 letters per year to your family. We will have guidelines for you to follow. The reason for the limit on the number of correspondence is because all of these documents will need to be translated from English to Amharic and vice versa. Many may also need to be read to the families, since many may be illiterate.

Will I be able to visit the family?

Our plan is to make it possible for you to visit the family should you want to. Of course there may be situations in which the family does not feel comfortable with this for one reason or another.  We do have to work a family visit around a Mom’s work schedule, so please be flexible if you hope to meet her.  We also ask that you remember that this is an intact family.  Your sponsorship is helping this family to stay together, so in many ways we downplay the role of sponsor so that we can focus on the vital relationship between a mom and her child.

Will you communicate with me?

We believe it to be very important to have open lines of communication. Now, this is Ethiopia, so sometimes culture and technology can hamper the quality and quantity of communication. However, if there is something going on in the life of the family or the child whom you are sponsoring, and they feel comfortable with it being shared, then we will contact you. We see it as vital to share special needs that arise as well as prayer requests. We want you to be involved in the life of a family…and involved in seeing them embrace hope in all of life.

    We are so in!! We want 100% to go to the family, so we’ll be sending a cheque. Coming from Canada, should it be in US funds?? Are we allowed to send the child/family packages (clothes & such)? We are very touched by what you & your family are doing there.
    xoxo

    Hi Lori & Rick. Thank you so much – That is awesome! Yes, I think it probably should be a cheque in US funds. I’m not sure about the current procedure for cashing a Canadian cheque in the US, but it used to be difficult. We will work out some occasional ways to have extra things sent for the family, but are currently trying to figure out the best scenario to see things be uniform and to not spark competition. We will provide ways for correspondence, picture sharing and that kind of stuff for sure.

    Many Blessings to you guys – we all send our love.
    Jerry
