SPONSORING A CHILD

CHANGES LIVES

Sponsoring a child makes a difference in their lives

Sponsoring a child through Bridge of Hope can break the cycle of barriers from children’s education. the child sponsorship is used to improve the educational opportunities of children in community we work in.

Rwandan government has made public education available to all citizens, but many children are still unable to go school due to the poverty from their families and this lead the rise of drop out because they can not afford the school supplies such as papers, pens and notebooks .trough your contribution will bring hope and change to a sponsored child’s life and community as well.

UNDERSTANDING SPONSORSHIP (Q&A)

What is sponsorship and how does it work?

When you become a child sponsor, you will begin a relationship with your child. You will assist them in their progress through Primary and Secondary Education, as well as help them remain healthy through their childhood.

Every family faces different challenges, and you will have the opportunity to support your child through these challenges, ultimately taking part in allowing the child to realize their full God-given potential and come to a relationship with Jesus Christ, becoming a contributing member to Rwandan society.

This is made possible by your sponsorship donation, made by you annually, quarterly, or monthly, which pays for school fees, uniforms, health insurance, and more. 

Your donations are used to meet the needs of your sponsored child’s community in Rwanda. Because of your support, your child will receive food, daily shelter, education, school uniform, medical care, and health insurance. And sponsorship ensures children hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.
By donating, you also help keep children safe while getting them ready to participate in shaping their own future. To effectively combat children’s vulnerability, it’s important to deal with both symptoms and causes, your support is what enables us to overcome these barriers and help children reach their potential.
