CHild Sponsorship

Our mission is to address the spiritual, educational, physical, and emotional needs of underprivileged children worldwide by sharing the love of Christ in practical ways.

An individual or family sponsors a child for $35/month which provides for the basic welfare of the child. Sponsors have the opportunity to communicate with their child and the option to visit them on a short-term mission trip.

A religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress 
- James 1:27

Education Breaks Cycle of Poverty

 

The majority of families working in the gritty marketplaces of Teguciagalpa, Honduras earn $2–5 a day, and have less than a sixth grade education. Unfortunately, many children will follow in the same steps as their parents. 

You can help provide educational scholarships for these students to attend a private, bilingual Christian school for $35 a month. We can break the cycles of illiteracy and poverty in Honduras by equipping these kids with the skills they will need to succeed.

RUSSIA

Changing the Destiny of Teen Orphans

In Russia, orphaned teens are released from the system at 16–18 years old, and are then expected to thrive in the regular world when most of their lives they have been institutionalized and not taught any life skills. Many of them end up involved in criminal activities, prostitution, or they take their own lives after a couple years on their own.

For $35 a month you can partner with local churches in Russia to provide safe homes where these orphans are empowered to learn life skills while living in a Christian environment, supervised by caring leaders as they transition into society.

Gypsy Kids Get a Chance at Survival

 

The gypsy camps in Ukraine are home to children from newborns to 18 years of age. Many have been abandoned, neglected, or abused. They frequently roam the streets hungry and are without jackets or shoes to survive the harsh winter months.

Through sponsorships, children in these gypsy camps now receive warm food, clothing, basic care, education, and a hope for the future. You can help provide for these children by sponsoring a child for $35 a month.

Bolivia

In 2019, Calvary founded a church plant and new child sponsorship program in La Paz, Bolivia in partnership with Compassion International. 

Compassion: “We fight poverty personally. We are child-focused. When a child is registered in our program the beneficiary of the support is the specific sponsored child. We work with the neediest and most vulnerable children that we can reach – the poorest of the poor.”
