Want to make a difference from home? Sponsor a child! Hard-working people around the world, many of whom are living in dire poverty, struggle to provide basic necessities for their children. You can help meet a family's needs by sponsoring a child in one of several sponsorship programs.

Sponsoring a child offers the chance at a brighter future. Your generosity helps provide a range of resources - clothing, medicine, education, etc. - that will allow your sponsored child to thrive. In addition to offering tangible assistance, your support and encouragement reminds them that they are not alone.

Each country is unique and has people with varying needs. Depending on which country your sponsored child lives in, your contributions will help purchase a range of material items that encourage their growth and development. These items may include:

  • Food
  • Medical care
  • School tuition
  • Clothing
  • Shelter

As a child sponsorship organization, Bold Hope aspires to connect, empower, and transform. Sponsoring a child connects communities across cultures and continents, impacting lives globally. Many people are struggling in our world - your generosity provides support that empowers children and families in the present, while also sharing the HOPE of eternal transformation.

Sponsorship FAQs

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.

Can I contact my sponsored child?

Sponsoring a child goes beyond just basic provision...it’s an opportunity to develop a true relationship with the child and their family. Writing letters is a chance to get to know them better and begin to understand life in their community.

Once you’re happy with your letter, use our online letter-writing page to submit the final draft. We will translate the letter into your sponsored child’s native tongue so that they and their family can read it. Please allow between two-three weeks for your letter to reach them. Once the letter arrives, your sponsored child can read the letter or have it read to them. They will then respond with a letter or drawing.

Bold Hope will update you on your sponsored child's progress at least twice annually.
