Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, more than you may be able to imagine. The child you support has substantial needs. In the real world, not every community is alike, and different aspects of need (abuse, hunger, gang-violence, illiteracy) are prioritized based on the needs of the children in a specific community environment. In every case, sponsorship supports a child’s education and allows caring adults to mentor them through their struggles. You make this transformation possible!
Child sponsorship starts at a minimum of $39 per month. If you can sponsor at a higher amount, please contact the office at 1-866-839-5437 to make arrangements.
Hope Story is a certified member of the Canadian Christian Council of Charities (CCCC), and as such, we undergo a rigorous certification process on an annual basis. Our CCCC Seal of Accountability means you can give confidently and generously toward the children in need. Every dollar we invest in children is outlined in a planned partner budget and accounted for through receipts from the field.
We hope that you can experience a long-term relationship with your sponsored child. The length of your sponsorship is dependent on many factors, such as when the child graduates, an unexpected departure of the child from the program due to family circumstances, or unforeseen circumstances that hinder sponsorship giving.
While we do not send physical gifts, you are encouraged to contribute financially to the child’s birthday or Christmas celebration. Contribute to the Celebration Fund here.
