Overseas Child Sponsorship 2018
You Can Help
Millions of children around the world are trapped in the cycle of poverty. Education is a key in breaking this vicious cycle, as is letting the families know that they don’t have to fight alone. The Salvation Army Child Sponsorship Program assists children in developing countries achieve their full potential.
With the Overseas Child Sponsorship program, The Salvation Army assigns your contribution to support The Salvation Army Children’s Home, School, Tutoring program, After School Program, Preschool or Feeding Program of your choice around the world. Your financial support provides for such necessities as: food, clothing, shelter, medical care and an education to children in need by sponsoring their Salvation Army youth institution or program. Without your help many children would face a bleak future.
How does child sponsorship work?
One of two ways.
- If you are not able to sign up for an on-going sponsorship, you can make a one-time donation to a Salvation Army child program in another country.
- If you are able to commit to at least a year sponsorship, your tax deductible sponsorship of $300 per year (paid annually, semiannually, quarterly or monthly) will enable The Salvation Army to provide a children’s program in a developing country assistance for education and general care. The funds are sent to the local Salvation Army Headquarters which monitors the needs of the children in their center.
You would become a ‘Program Sponsor’ and support an entire institution, so that you can help all the children. Program sponsors receive a yearly newsletter from the institution, which gives information on events and the activities of the children. You will enjoy the pictures of these dear children. You are welcome to send an encouraging note to the children or staff, through our office.
Thank you for taking an interest in our sponsorship program. You could change lives-really!
