Project HOPEFUL supports child sponsorship in several of its global locations. Research has shown that direct sponsorship of children (or families) overseas is an effective way to support development and, ultimately, independence. In our experience it also has a remarkable impact on the sponsoring family. Uganda9-300x200 When you become a sponsor, you are connected to a specific child in one of our programs and will be able to build and nurture a relationship with your sponsored child if you choose. Sponsored children are children at risk for being overlooked for one of several different reasons – they may be close to aging out, they may have medical conditions that make adoption a lower likelihood, they may have a traumatic background, or they may have multiple siblings and a complex family situation. In any case, through your giving, you are providing your sponsor child access to necessities like food, clothing, clean water, medical care, and an education. We believe that investing in a child can change the course of that child’s life! We offer child sponsorship programs in Ethiopia, Guatemala and Uganda, with more countries to be added in the future.
