How Sponsorship Works

1. Building the Foundation

We partner with community members to understand their needs, goals and resources, and work together to find long-term solutions to the challenges they face.

Learn about our approach

 

2. Evaluate and Grow

We adapt plans as we begin to see change in children’s lives so that the community continues to meet its goals. As more community members get involved, the community takes increasing ownership of its success.
