Pooled Sponsorship

Spread the love

Rescue and enrich the life of an orphan or widow or make it possible for a young person to gain an education through our sponsorship program.  For $50 a month (suggested amount) you help supply food, clothing, shelter, and an education to an entire orphanage, widow’s or leprosy community or vocational training center.

Visit our orphan and widow page featuring individuals who desperately need your assistance. Each face and name is a real person, who directly benefits from your partnership as you pray and give toward their future and those living in their community of pooled sponsorship.

Our partners in India and Rwanda informed us that “individual” sponsorship presents numerous difficulties. From an accounting perspective, it is challenging and tedious to monitor what is spent for each orphan. Since they feed, clothe and educate all of the children, regardless if they have been sponsored, it seems logical to allow the partners to “pool” the resources we send to benefit the entire orphanage or community. Pooled sponsorship also prevents jealousy or hurt feelings.  Individual sponsorship leaves other children and widows feeling unwanted and left out. Instances of blackmail with distant relatives and the surrounding community have occurred as well and pooled sponsorship will help remove this risk from the equation as the pastors work tirelessly to care for the children and people groups they serve in Jesus name.

Direct Benefits of Pooled Sponsorship

  • Pooled Sponsorship allows your money to bless an entire community rather than just one individual.
    • Your dollar packs a bigger punch with pooled sponsorship. Each dollar given improves many lives, impacting ALL of the children in one orphanage or an entire community of widows.
  • Help care for people’s daily needs of food, clothing, shelter and education.
  • Allow people to learn of the love of Jesus in a safe and supportive environment through your generosity.
  • Each person assisted is surrounded by others locally who share truth and lavish Jesus’ love upon them.

Additional Reasons to Support Pooled Sponsorship

We are constantly striving to support our charity partners in ways that benefit them over our own preferences or comfort. In the past year and a half, our partners in India and Rwanda informed us that “individual-type” sponsorship presents numerous difficulties.

Since they feed, clothe and educate all of the children, regardless if they have been sponsored, it seems logical to allow the partners to “pool” the resources we send to benefit the entire orphanage or community.

Pooled sponsorship also prevents jealousy or hurt feelings.  Individual sponsorship leaves other children and widows feeling unwanted and left out.
