How much of my donation goes to help my sponsored child?

Last Updated: November 15, 2019 8:44 am

No less than 80 percent of your donation goes to ministry activities, including all expenses that occur within the country your sponsored child is from,  which directly benefit sponsored children. Children and families do not receive cash but instead are recipients of goods and services, carefully designed, delivered or purchased according to their needs. 100 percent of family and child gifts go directly to the child and family, as appropriate gifts purchased by centre staff in consultation with the family (nothing is withheld for administration). Independent and internal audits of our work are conducted to ensure donor support is being used efficiently and with integrity.
