We will source 2 additional sponsors for these children.

This money is used as follows:

  • P.70 towards opening a bank account for the child, the money will be deposited monthly.
  • P.70 towards toiletries and necessary items for the well being of the child at home, closely monitored by us.
  • P.70 towards the project. (P.35 towards the sustainability of the project and P.35 for educational pre-school and creative materials that the child would benefit from during their childhood.)

Your input after that would be up to you. You could:

Visit the child, get to know the child, have birthday parties, take the child on holiday, get involved with the care giver and many other ideas.


You could simply pay the money and not get involved. It is your own choice.

We will send you yearly reports and photos of your child.

We will maintain the Post Office book for you and see that the child gets the money when they become of age. In the case of their decease prior to the date, we will use the money to help with funeral expenses. The remaining money will go to the next of kin.
