It costs approximately £1,500 a year to look after all of the needs of a supported child at the Homes. Most sponsors make a monthly standing order for £100 and we reclaim giftaid to cover the full amount. Each sponsorship is personal. You will be supporting a named child through their education, and if you wish, beyond. Many of our sponsors are individuals. We are very grateful to one in particular, who has consecutively sponsored five different children during more than forty years association with our committee.
A relationship she has found enormously rewarding. Some sponsors are groups of friends who contribute together, with one of the group taking responsibility as co-ordinator. We have churches who “adopt” a child giving a personal link to the reality of third world poverty. The personal connection with the child is often stated as their reason for supporting our work.
