Will I sponsor an actual child?
Yes. You have the opportunity to choose and sponsor one or more specific children and to pray specifically for them and their family. You may also visit them.
Will my sponsorship donation go directly to my child?
Learning from experienced sponsorship programs who have earned high ratings from charity watchdog organizations, Esperanza de Ana has always followed the most effective and "best practice". All sponsorship gifts are combined so that the needs of all children are met equally. This focuses on long-term community development and ensures that Esperanza de Ana can meet its priority of crisis intervention. Although it is not always apparent, most all sponsorship programs operate under this model.
Will I be the only sponsor for my child?
Because of the range of comprehensive, holistic care and services that Esperanza de Ana provides, more than one sponsor per child is needed to cover our sponsorship goal of 60% of total program costs. The remaining budget need is covered through EA Partners (churches and individuals who give on a recurring basis), fundraising events, Scholarship Fund giving, and special campaigns.
