When you send a Special Gift, our local staff work with your sponsored child, their family and community to determine what is needed most. Your sponsored child could receive items such as school supplies, clothing, livestock or other items that they will benefit from.
The entire community also can benefit from gifts such as agricultural tools, building supplies, a water tank, or support for a local school or clinic. Any amount over $200 will be used to benefit the community that your sponsored child lives in.
When you give a Special Gift, you will receive a thank you letter and photo from your sponsored child that shares how your gift is making a difference. Please allow at least five to six months to receive a response.
