Our mission is to give individuals the opportunity to love a child by sharing in their lives through sponsorship and to exhibit the love of Christ, so that both the giver and receiver come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Our Overseas Child Sponsorship program is currently supporting children residing in Salvation Army Children Homes and children who need the daily resources of our Salvation Army Children Centers. Our Salvation Army Children Homes and Centers provide a great deal of support to many children. Whether it is giving a child a warm meal or providing a child with a clean and safe place to sleep, our homes are there to assist in a time of need.
Sponsorship is about changing the world one child at a time. It’s about preventing illness by inoculation, good food and pure water. It’s about preparing young women and men for self-sufficiency by education and a positive self-image. It’s about supporting spiritual growth by assisting The Salvation Army in carrying out the mandate of Jesus when He said, “ Inasmuch as you did it to the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
Assuming sponsorship of a child, or children, in one of The Salvation Army’s many children’s institutions overseas, could well be one of the most rewarding investments you will ever make. Imagine the thrill of saving the lives of youngsters suffering from malnutrition – youngsters facing a grim future without proper food and clothing or anyone who really cares. Sponsorship is a unique way of funding a development program. Each person who contributes by sponsoring a child helps accelerate the process of development not only in the life of a child but in their own lives as well.
