1. Myth: It’s not a “real” child. More people sponsor one child.
2. Myth: I can contact my child anytime I want.
Truth: We have 375 kids and just 2 local project managers, so as much as our children LOVE to receive your letters and presents, we cannot send our project managers to the kids on a daily basis. We have set up certain times in which we do that, so if you do not receive an answer immediately, just be patient, as we love for our sponsor to be in touch with our children and for our children to know that they are loved. Beside, once you become a donor you will be able to access our private facebook group where our project managers will keep you posted on our children and what they are up to on a daily basis.
3. Myth: I only have to sponsor a child for one year.
4. Myth: It’s an old-fashioned, outdated way of doing development work and it’s just a temporary help that will create dependencies on NGO’s
Truth: Self-sufficiency is our primary goal for child sponsorship communities.
This is why we have also put in place a micro-credit program to help the families of the children we sponsor, and we make sure that our children will get the best education they can so they will themselves break the poverty chain.
5. Myth: My sponsorship won’t really make a difference.
Truth: It makes all the difference.Sponsoring a child is even more powerful and life changing than you could have imagined. A child you are sponsoring today will grow up to become a doctor, a teacher, an engineer, a political leader, a professional. Beside, providing a sustaining donation allow us to budget and plan ahead and make a long term-investment in our communities in Jinja and Kampala.
So would you like to make a real difference?
