Sponsor a Child in Belize
Child sponsorship provides HOPE and a future to children around the globe who might otherwise find themselves in desperate situations. Your sponsorship quite literally has the power to impact them for eternity. Bold Hope lets you choose the country and child that you want to sponsor. We want you to feel connected to the child before you begin the sponsorship process. If you’re ready to make a difference, sponsor a child now — they need you.
Support Children in Need in Belize
Belize is a small country of less than a half million residents, many of them children who are more likely to be living in poverty than anyone else. Families struggle to feed their children, and local churches and organizations have little materials to serve their communities in the ways they want and need to. As a result, many children desperately need food, school materials and clothing.
When you choose to sponsor a child in need from Belize, you give them a chance to succeed in more ways than one. Your generosity allows them to do more than meet their basic needs - it allows them to change their lives for the better.
At Bold Hope, our desire is to connect people across cultures and continents to the glory of God. Empowering children and families by providing medical care, nutrition, and education presents them with increased opportunity for growth and development. No one can choose where they are born, but the transforming power of the gospel transcends location and situation. Your generous sponsorship creates the possibility of a future beyond what they ever thought possible.

Sponsorship in Belize provides children with:
We partner with families to help pay annual tuition and uniform fees. The cost of education increases substantially in high school and this is typically where schooling ends for students.
Children in the sponsorship program receive an annual check-up.
Each family receives a grocery bag full of healthy food once per month, to supplement what they are able to provide for themselves.
It is our partners’ desire to pour into these children so that they will grow up to give back to their community.
Nothing else the children receive matters if they don’t know the truth about salvation. Our staff and partners intentionally disciple sponsored children by demonstrating Christ’s love and sharing God’s Word through Bible studies and VBS programs.
- Why is Bold Hope sponsorship more expensive than other sponsorship programs?
Rather than having a set amount for sponsorship globally, we have developed a program that allows us to work in all countries without restrictions on what we can provide or how much things cost. The amount needed for sponsorship is determined by which needs local leaders are seeking to help meet and how much it costs to meet them. What sponsorship includes and costs varies country by country. As a result, sponsorship costs more in some places than others. In an effort to make sponsorship affordable for the donors, we’ve assigned more than one sponsorship slot to each child. No matter how many sponsors each child has, your prayers and support are priceless. Your involvement goes a long way to providing HOPE and a future for your sponsored child.
- Does the money go directly to the family?
Sponsoring a child through Bold Hope provides you with the unique opportunity to develop a relationship with one specific child. However, monthly sponsorship donations are pooled in order to make the greatest impact. What does this mean? It means that because of your generosity, and that of other sponsors, children around the globe have not only the chance to thrive, but also HOPE for their futures. Sponsorship funds long-term programs and initiatives with the aim of empowering individual sponsored children as well as their entire communities.
We work closely with local churches and missionaries to ensure that the children enrolled in the sponsorship program are receiving the benefits of sponsorship. Rather than giving money directly to the sponsored family, local leaders are responsible for things like purchasing food, supplies, or paying school fees. We require regular reports from the sponsorship program directors to ensure that the needs of each sponsored child are being met. Each program is reviewed at least once annually.
- How can I contact my sponsored child?
Bold Hope values the relationship between you and the child you sponsor. If you want to keep in touch with your sponsored child, we can help. Thanks to our online submission page, you can write a letter to your sponsored child and submit it to us. All you have to do is provide your email, name and the child's name.
Once you submit your message to us, we translate it so your sponsored child can understand. They will receive it within an estimated two or three weeks. Then, the letter is read to your sponsored child and their family. After they hear your message, they can also respond to your letter by writing their own or drawing a picture.
Bold Hope sends out biannual updates on our child sponsorship organizations in Belize. That way, you can learn what’s going on when your schedule is too hectic to write letters.
