Long-term commitments

We ask that you sponsor a child only if you are committed to continuing that support through high school. We understand that situations change and you may not be able to continue sponsorship. Please notify us if this is the case and we will work to either find a co-sponsor or a new sponsor.

Short-term commitments

If you hesitate in sponsoring long-term, please consider donating to the General Fund. These funds go to helping children who either do not have a sponsor, have lost a sponsor, or who have unforeseen circumstances and need additional funds.

Matching you with a child
Our program seeks to match you with with a primary or secondary school child at your request when possible. Is some cases, need supersedes grade level. In these cases we will will match you with a child in the most need.

Communication with your child

We request that sponsors enclose a photograph and letter to the child they sponsor along with their yearly sponsorship contribution. The role as “Godparent” can be quite meaningful to the sponsored child, even if she/he never meets you face to face. We also encourage sponsors to write twice a year, especially during the New Year holidays and the child's birthday. You may wish to enclose a family or personal photo with your letters.


Mailing letters

Letters should be scanned and e-mailed to the child in care of Centro de Esperanza Infantil or mailed via postal mail.
