Child Sponsorship Program

This month we’re launching a child sponsorship program!

We currently have 13 children who benefit from your generosity. Here’s a chance for you to see first hand what your donations are doing.

For the next few months, we’ll be sharing stories & pictures of all the children, asking you to consider becoming a monthly supporter to one of the kids.

Meet Srijana

Srijana came to the home less than a year ago. At 8 years old, she’s one of the youngest girls in the home.

Before coming to the home, she lived with her uncle, but no one has seen or heard from him since he abandoned her at the home. Srijana was shy when she first arrived, had trouble focusing, and may have something wrong with her eyesight.

Now, Srijana is like a ray of sunshine, with the brightest, widest smile you can possibly imagine. She’s still a little shy, but loves her new family fiercely, likes to meet new people, and enjoys eating momos (the Nepali version of dumplings). She loves to sing, and is learning about all the birds of Nepal. Her favorite bird is the parrot, and when she grows up she wants to be a pilot.

Getting Involved

Ready to make a monthly commitment, and find out more about Srijana? Consider becoming a monthly donor, and giving Srijana the bright future she deserves.

Child sponsorship is a way to get involved not only with Srijana, but the whole home.

Through our updates, you can see just where your money is going. Your monthly donation will pay for Srijana’s school fees, new clothes & books, and basic needs like food, doctor’s visits, and upkeep of the home. It will also help pay the salary of the cook and the tutor, people who are necessary to provide strong support for Srijana and all the other children.

To be fully transparent about our ongoing expenses, we decided to set up a different kind of sponsorship plan than what is typical in charities these days.

The total expenses for each child are $200 – $250 a month. Instead of one sponsor, we’re looking for four to five donors per child, each willing to send $30 – $50 per month. Each child will have the benefit of not one, but five people investing in their lives. You can also consider co-sponsoring a child with a group of friends and family members.

If you’d like to sponsor Srijana, fill out a donation form at: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/23654.

Choose “monthly donation” and select “Nepal” from the drop-down menu, then choose a monthly amount between $30 and $50, depending on what works for you.

In the comment section, note that you would like to co-sponsor Srijana. You can make all the difference in the world for this little girl who has finally found a family and a safe home!
