Sponsorship Questions

What is holistic development?

We take a practical approach to the support and development of a child that recognizes the many aspects of a child’s personhood. Meeting physical, intellectual, social and spiritual needs is essential for sustainable personal growth.

Does my financial support go directly to my sponsored child?

Yes! Your sponsorship support provides for your child’s school tuition and their own personal, immediate needs. A member of our team makes routine visits to provide support around money management and accountability. Additionally, a portion of your donations are used to operate inclusive community-run programs that benefit your sponsored child and their peers.

What programs are run in communities?

Programming in your sponsored child’s community is unique to the needs identified by the local leadership. Examples include: nutrition programs, education and spiritual growth opportunities, children’s camps, etc. These are valuable programs that help to build community and strengthen relationships. Despite the uniqueness of programs run in each community… the theme and heart of them remain the same … everyone belongs.

How does sponsoring a child with or without a disability support overall disability awareness and integration?

Our Programs exist to support children with disabilities but not all children in the Sponsorship Program experience disability. By uplifting whole communities, we help build capacity for integration and support for people of all abilities. We want communities to be places where everybody belongs and all use their God-given gifts. We develop opportunities for all children and specifically ensure that these programs include those who have differences of abilities. This approach is mutually beneficial for those experiencing disability, families in extreme poverty, and the community as a whole.

How are children chosen to participate in the sponsorship program?

We work with local community leaders to identify the children with the highest need for support. We intentionally seek children and families who are affected by disability. Most often, these are families who have not been given the attention they require due to cultural stigma. Children are chosen regardless of religious background or affiliation.

What age do children graduate from the Sponsorship Program?

Support is based on a stage of life, not their age in life. A child can remain supported through the program:

•As long as they are attending school

•Into young adulthood, if they have a disability

Can I write to my sponsored child?

Yes! Children love to hear from their sponsors! Visit here for more details.

Do I receive a tax receipt for my donations?

Tax receipts are issued annually for all sponsorship donations and can arrive to via email or hard copy depending on your preference.

What is your financial accountability?

Christian Horizons Global is audited annually by external auditors and is a member of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities.
