WHERE IS SPONSORSHIP AVAILABLE? Sponsorship is available at Salvation Army children’s homes and schools in developing countries located in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Eastern Europe. How to give: • personal check • bank automated check • money order • online credit card payment You can make your $25/month payment: monthly, quarterly, annually – whatever is most convenient for you.

WHY DO WE ONLY OFFER SPONSORSHIP OF CHILDREN’S HOMES, SCHOOLS AND CENTERS? The life of an orphaned and vulnerable child is unstable and unfair. When only certain children in the home receive the benefits of sponsorship and the others look on and wonder why they are not sponsored, inequality and feelings of not being valued are perpetuated. This form of sponsorship benefits all the children involved, ensures equal opportunity and creates self-worth. It reduces unnecessary tension among children and allows staff to make better use of time and energy at the home, school or center.


“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”–isaiah 1:17
