The heart of our operating budget comes from individuals, families, and groups who decide to stand in the gap for a child by becoming a child sponsor. You can become involved as a child sponsor at any amount. It takes multiple sponsors for each child to provide all that is needed for both basic necessities and care plus medical care, tuition, uniform, and supplies for attending school. Grassroots breaks this cost down to enable more people to participate in the effort.
TOTAL COST OF CARE FOR ANGEL HOUSE ORPHANS:
Total cost of care is $3,000 per year for an elementary student, secondary/high school, or college student. Grassroots is thrilled for sponsors to choose a monthly/quarterly/annual gift amount that works for their family, Sunday School class, or small group. Grassroots will pair individuals and families together into sponsor teams until the child’s needs are fully covered. Every gift is important, no matter the size, and we are grateful for each child sponsor partnership.
BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR SPONSORED CHILD:
As a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to communicate with your child. You are encouraged to send letters and photos to your child. Sponsors can post a letter to the home’s PO Box in Tanzania or write an email that will be read with and translated by one of the Angel House staff members. The children LOVE to receive mail and know that someone is thinking about them and praying for them.
Simply provide your first gift in any amount using the Giving Options below to become a sponsor. Once your gift is received, Grassroots will send you information about the child you are sponsoring. We will provide updates and information about Angel House, the school, and what is happening in your sponsored child’s life through monthly sponsor emails.
DOES MY SPONSORSHIP MONEY GO DIRECTLY TO THE CHILD?
As a child sponsor, you are connected with one specific child. However, sponsored children do not receive cash benefits. Your monthly donation is pooled for maximum effectiveness – meaning sponsored children do not receive funds directly. You join forces with other sponsors to fund each child’s growth and development within the orphanage.
