Child Foundation’s Sponsorship Program currently assists underprivileged children living in fishermen’s communities on the west coast of Nicaragua. The goal of the program goal is to help these children remain in school. Many of the children accepted into Child Foundation’s sponsorship program are living in severe poverty, existing on less than $1.00 a day.
What is unique about our sponsorship program is how a child is selected for the program. Children enrolled in our sponsorship program have been identified as high achievers, meaning they have the potential and desire to learn. Social workers and teachers help us identify these children.
The rationale behind selecting children who are high achievers is to help these children, and their respective families, end the cycle of poverty. By helping children in need stay in school, we enable them to participate not only in their own transformation, but also the transformation of their family for generations to come. By giving children who are living in poverty access to education today, they receive the tools to become self-sufficient, contributing members of society tomorrow.
When our foundation is notified that a child or family is experiencing hardship, we act. Once the family or child has been identified, a Child Foundation social worker visits the family and prepares a detailed report of the family’s situation. This report includes all aspects of the child’s life: the financial details, the family’s education and history, and the family’s medical and living conditions. Once a child has been accepted into our sponsorship program, he or she is then matched up with one or more sponsors.
As a sponsor, you can choose your method of payment, the frequency of payment as well as how much you would like to contribute monthly. You can even choose whether you would like to provide the full amount of the family’s needs per one year or share sponsorship of the child with other donors. Generally, sponsorship donations range from $20.00-$30.00 per month. As Beauchamp Charity Foundation is registered as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, all donations are tax deductible.
Sponsoring a child is a wonderful way to experience the gift of giving. You can create a caring relationship that may last a lifetime with a child who will always remember your kindness and generosity. Once you become a sponsor, you will receive a Sponsorship Kit.
