Child Sponsorship More Info

on Tuesday, 19 June 2012. Posted in How to Be A HERO, Sponsor A Child, US, Canada, Australia

What Does Sponsorship Pay For?

For sponsored children, the knowledge that someone on the other side of the world also cares for them gives them a lift in spirit that could make the difference in their lives. Examples of what sponsorship pays for are:-

  • In Bangladesh - contributes to Global Concern/Every Home for Christ schooling, a hot meal every day for students and teachers, study material and some medical help for children living in slum conditions. A portion of the funds will be used to provide opportunities for parents and other adults in the community to have vocational training in sewing classes, and rickshaw businesses as well as learning about health, hygiene and family planning.
  • In Cambodia - supports a child rescued from exploitation and now safe in the SHE Rescue Home which means a future, a hope and an opportunity for her to see dreams reached and her family restored
  • In Kenya - supports children living and schooling at Heroes of the Nation - education, housing, carers, meals, sports, music

Can I Write to Sponsored Children?

Be A Hero has a process in place in which any emails and mail sent to the children is checked to ensure that it does not detrimentally affect the children there. As you can imagine, these children have next to nothing, so any information about our lifestyle, needs to be filtered carefully to protect the children, including details of holidays and living conditions. Once you commit to sponsorship we provide tips for communicating with the children.

It takes some time to receive a reply as most of the children do not speak English well, so often the letters have to be interpreted to them and their letters have to be translated into English.

Be A Hero asks that sponsor parents do not send any additional money for the sponsored child’s personal use. If you have any questions in this regard or would like to contribute to the children in another capacity, please contact us.

From time to time information is received about the child and this is also forwarded on to the person sponsoring the child.

AusAID Guidelines

Under the Australian Government's AusAID guidelines, child sponsorship must support the whole field partner's development program – which of course includes every child in their care. Australia-wide, tax deductible sponsorship programs cannot send funds directly to an individual child under the Australian government's legislation.

Nobel prizewinner, Gabriella Mistral, put it this way: “We are guilty of many errors and and many faults, but our worst is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer, ‘Tomorrow’. His name is ‘Today’.

Two levels of sponsorship:

Partial Sponsorship – contributes towards the cost of food, housing, and clothing for a child, for $33.00 per month (or $396.00 for a year) This includes a $3.00/month handling fee.

Full Sponsorship – contributes towards the cost of food, housing, clothing, schooling and medical care for a child, for $63.00 per month (or $756.00 for a year) This includes a $3.00/month handling fee.

After we receive your payment, you will  receive a photograph, a short biography, and instructions on how to communicate with your sponsored child.

Payment options include:

Monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly payments by:-

  • pre-authorized debit or by Visa or MasterCard
  • direct from your bank account
  • cheque
  • cash
