Child Sponsorship Programme
Child sponsorship is all about making a long term difference in the life of a child. Bringing back lost smiles to Orphans and children affected by HIV/AIDS is our responsibility. We provide Academic support through paying their school fees, giving them Scholastic Materials, as well as meeting their basic needs. Our holistic educational approach supports orphans to achieve national educational levels like any other child in the country. Through an education you are empowering a child to make a better life for themselves and their community with an opportunity to rise above poverty.
Specifically, a sponsorship provides financial assistance for the health, education and general welfare of orphaned and disadvantaged children. Through child sponsorship you are providing children with an opportunity for a quality education, daily meals, clothing, and medical care. Without sponsorship they would not have access this opportunity.
Make a Difference Today
When you sponsor through SOHM, you offer a hand up — not a handout — to a family working to lift themselves out of poverty through hard work, initiative and hope.
Your child will attend a Christian school, run by the local religious, indigenous men and women who understand the particular needs related to the child.
Bring a smile to someone's face and change lives forever!
Your monthly contribution of $50 directly benefits the specific individual you sponsor to help meet their basic needs.
Local staff members work with sponsored families on how to best use their benefits to achieve personal and family goals. This may include resources for:
- Health care
- Education and skills training
- Improved living conditions
