Children International 

Children International

This is an awesome organization.  We have sponsored 3 children so far and hope to sponsor many more (1 has graduated, and we have 2 active).  You give a monthly donation in order for your chosen sponsored child to have access to so many things they cannot afford access to in their home country like schooling, medical access, daily lunches, Christmas and birthday gifts and more.

You will receive regular correspondence with your sponsored child, and this will enrich your geography and social studies lessons so much on such a relatable and personal level.

My kids have gotten to know children from around the world, learn how they live, and have grown compassion and a desire to give to those less fortunate than themselves.

One of our current sponsored children addressed a recent letter to my kids as her brother and sister.  This touched my kids so much and made their relationship even closer.  I’m sure I haven’t seen all the fruits that will grow from the sponsorships we have.
