Many folks ask us the question, “Does sponsorship help a child?” Well, let me tell you that I believe it does wholeheartedly. We personally have several sponsor children and the reason that I chose to sponsor with Blessing the Children was the quality of the program. I saw starving children getting meals, being helped out with clothing and shoes even before they were in the program and staff who genuinely cared about the children.
I have watched the Blessing the Children program grow over the last six years of being a part of it. Did you know you have an open invitation to visit your child with Blessing the Children? Did you know that you can send gifts and letters as often as you like? Did you know this program runs completely threw University? Did you know that Blessing the Children runs a training program to help the sponsored families establish a sustainable income?
Have you always wanted to go to Africa but were hesitant because of not knowing the culture, language and how to get around. Blessing the Children provides a skilled Social Worker to be your translator and tour guide until you feel at ease to get around. They also explain the culture and reasons you should or should not do certain things; like taking pictures of the local military or close by the local military, right Sonia?!
Here are a few quotes from some of sponsors:
I was thrilled to get to meet my child first hand. All the money that we give goes to Ethiopia and helps the child and helps pay for quality staff in Ethiopia. – Peggy
I was amazed at how much help is given to the child and how much food they get and the quality education they receive at the school. -Sheila
I want to sponsor a child that I know receives the majority of my money. I like the fact that Blessing the Children runs foster homes and not an orphanage. I know Rick and Sheila personally and I trust them. – Linda
