Can I send money to the family of my sponsored child?

Last Updated: March 20, 2014 2:45 pm

You are welcome to send a family gift of $40 to $1000 per year. The project staff will talk with the child and family to help them to spend your gift in the wisest way, with the best long-term improvement for the family. This will often be a business opportunity, such as a food stall or livestock. If you would rather specify that your sponsored child’s family use your gift for income-earning, you can simply ask us to attach a Gift Instruction to your gift. However, gifts are more effective when the child and family are free to use them for their greatest need.
