No. Each child has only one sponsor. This provides a great opportunity to build a meaningful relationship and impact the lives of both the sponsor and sponsored child. It also creates the need for commitment on the sponsor’s part. The child, without the continued support from the sponsor, will be unable to remain in the program.
You are able to send an additional contribution along with your monthly sponsorship. Our local partners will then use that money to purchase a gift of your choice, and present it to your sponsored child. For additional information you can contact us through our website, www.hischildreninternational.org, or call 1-866-534-8177.
Our sponsors commit to donating thirty-seven dollars a month to His Children International. The funds are pooled along with contributions from other sources, such as corporations, and used to provide the program benefits to ALL of our sponsored children. Doing this allows us to make your donation go a long way to enriching the lives of children in impoverished neighborhoods. It also ensures that no child misses these opportunities due to lack of prompt payment on their sponsor’s part.
His Children International partners with local churches to provide the program services to the children of the community. One of our partnering church’s responsibilities is to provide us with a detailed monthly financial report as well as a yearly one. We track the spending of every single dollar we send. We also visit the centers each month for the purpose of monitoring all aspects of the program.
All communication is handled by His Children International. You send your letters to us and after translating them, we mail them to our partnering church, who gives them to your sponsored child. In the same way, we receive your sponsored child’s letters and after the translation process, they are mailed to you.
We understand the importance of being good stewards of God’s resources and the responsibility we have with the children we serve, as well as with our donors. A yearly financial report, as well as Form 990, will be posted on our website no later than two months after the end of our fiscal year.
Yes. When you decide to sponsor a child, it is important that you understand that it is not just about sending money. A relationship begins at the moment when that child knows there is someone far away who cares about him/her. Breaking that relationship is not good for the child. Although certain circumstances may force you to terminate your sponsorship, we encourage you to view this as an INVESTMENT in a life who needs you. The length of the commitment will depend on the child’s age when entering the program.
The children we serve receive the following benefits, among others: the opportunity to hear the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ and be taught the Word of God; nutritional and medical assistance; practical skills aimed at giving them economic independence; educational help through tutoring; physical education to promote a healthy lifestyle; music and art classes.
In short, they receive love, care, and guidance in a Christian environment.
Every prospective sponsored child’s family receives a home visit from a staff member of our partnering church. The objective of the visit is to determine the family’s commitment to make this a long-lasting decision, as well as to assess their need. Each child is required to attend a minimum of 9 hours per week to remain active in the program.
If His Children International is operating in that community, we will transfer the child to that program. If that is not the case, the sponsor will be notified in writing within 30 days and the sponsorship will be terminated. Any sponsorship fees paid after the removal of that child from the program will be reimbursed. However, the sponsor will always have the opportunity to sponsor a new child.
