When you sponsor a child you are giving the entire school community the opportunity to escape poverty and discrimination. You will receive a card with your child's photo and will have the opportunity to write and receive letters as well as an open invitation to visit your child in Kenya each February. For only $38 per month your child will attend school, receive an excellent education, have a safe place to sleep at night, and be given nutritious meals each day.
Through the Hearts that Hear child sponsorship program, you are connected with one specific child of your choosing, however your monthly contributions are pooled for maximum effectiveness. This means that instead of giving cash benefits to one child, you are combined with other sponsors to fund development programs that benefit not only your sponsored child but other children in desperate need of overcoming poverty. Your sponsorship will benefit an individual child through an excellent education, health care, along with meals during their time at school.
We hope that you will be able to continue your support of your sponsored child until he or she completes high school. While we hope that this is the case for many of our sponsors, we understand that circumstances can change and so your sponsorship can be canceled at any time. Your sponsor child will be placed back up for sponsorship when/if this occurs.
We work with children who, oftentimes, face immensely difficult situations. We strive to provide a safe environment for children to learn, grow and play, but sometimes situations change and children have to leave our programs. For example, the family has moved to another community. If your child leaves our sponsorship program, your sponsorship will be moved to a new child so that you can continue helping children in need. If you would prefer to sponsor a child other than the one we have chosen for you, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days. The child we had assigned to you will become eligible for sponsorship by someone else as generous as you.
Developing a relationship between a sponsor and a child is incredibly important to “Hearts that Hear”. We greatly encourage you to write letters to your student(s) and send photos of you and your family. You can email letters and pictures to email@example.com. We will print those letters and photos for your student and bring them to Kenya on our next trip. If you’d like to send something handwritten to your student, please send it to Hearts that Hear, 212 Hadley Road, Stony Creek, NY, 12878. Specific gifts can be purchased on our website to help your child and stimulate the local economy.
