The benefits you help provide extend to each child's family, their community, and other children in need. That's because I AM Family plans and works alongside local community members to find solutions that will change the future for their children.
Wonderful things happen when you make the choice to sponsor a child. For only about $1 a day, you'll show your child God's unconditional love by providing them with access to critical resources such as: Education, food, clothes and medication. Below are the monthly costs for these different programs:
- Elementary school child: $35 per month
- Highschool child: $55 per month
I AM Family sponsorship program creates real, lasting change for children and their communities. We are based on a strong Christian background and Our compassionate, Christian staff show God's love to all people as they help build healthy communities for children in the world's most impoverished places. I am partners with sponsored children's communities over the long term to address critical needs and help communities become self-sustaining.
We want you to be able to connect, building a strong and lasting relationship with your sponsor child. One great way to do that is to write a letter of updates and encouragement! Sending your sponsor child a letter is a way in which you can show your child that you care about them and are pray for them.
- A welcome kit with a photo and information about your sponsored child.
- The opportunity to write and receive letters and even email your child through our email system.
- Annual progress reports.
- Updated photos of your child.
You'll also have the chance to build a relationship with your sponsored child that will transform both your lives. You will be able to make arrangements to visit your sponsored child in Uganda if you please.
We believe the most effective way to help children is by combining your sponsorship with those of other sponsors and donors. Some of the children on our sponsorship list have multiple sponsors. We are doing this for several very critical reasons. First, many of these children stay at the orphanage and one sponsor is not enough to feed, clothe, take care of medically, pay the light bills, purchase everything needed to run the home and to pay some money to the people who do all the work there.
Secondly we combine sponsorship money so we can legally provide tax receipts to US donors. It is not legal in the US to designate money to a specific individual and still provide a tax receipt to the donor. However, by sponsoring a child you can still make a special connection with that child even though your donation contributes to the well being of the entire orphanage. You will receive letters from the child and we will provide updates on the child's education. We want you to form a long term relationship with the child you sponsor!
