We do once again introduce to you the above program which is part of the objectives of increasing enrollment and supporting orphans/vulnerable children in schools, basic, legal, nutritional and medical support. We have so far identified 136 children who need the help most and we have confidence that with your help these children can reach un expected heights in the future and be able to sustain themselves and their families.
We also want to thank our current sponsors of the children for your continued and tireless support for the disadvantaged children in various forms. The challenges are still increasing due to the high costs and poor standards of living coupled with the increasing number of orphans without any assistance and child-headed families . But while we are assisting these children, we can’t do it in isolation of your support. We are therefore calling for your kind participation in helping these helpless children and their families live a better life by sponsoring or getting them sponsors to meet their Educational, Nutritional, Medical, Legal and Basic support.
It does not need one to be very rich to help a child under Eden Ministries because we believe that even a cup of water can create a huge smile on a needy child’s face. Child sponsorship allows you to personally connect with a child in need while making a lasting investment in his/her future. Your donation also strengthens your child’s local community, ensuring an extended network of support and a safe environment in which your child can thrive.
You will receive a photo and personal profile of the child you are sponsoring, updates on his/her well being, and notes, drawings or correspondence from your child, at least twice a year. You will also have the opportunity to send notes and small gifts to your child.
Child sponsorship provides more than just short-term hunger relief—it provides total quality of life (improved health, better education, a reduced risk of HIV/AIDS, higher earning potential, etc.) and a brighter future for your sponsored child. You can make a difference in a child’s life by providing assistance for the basic living needs of a child.
Below are the estimated costs of sponsoring a child under Eden Ministries currently.
- 1 US Dollar for a Child’s meal a day.
- 99 US. Dollars for Educational support including scholastic requirements per child per term (3 months).
- 15US Dollars for Basic support like clothing, Bedding, soap, etc per month.
- 20 US Dollars for Medical support per child per month.
- 10 US Dollars for Administrative costs per child per month.
- 1 or more dollars towards a common Basket for supporting the organization in helping those children without sponsors yet which is allowed at any time our supporter may wish.
However, due to the various income levels of our sponsors/supporters, we do accept Partial sponsorship such as sponsoring a Child in one or more areas listed above.
We shall be very grateful if you become a sponsor or get our children sponsors such that they can also live like other happy children on earth.
Financial management of the children’s funds.
For efficient management of our sponsor’s money, we have resolved that every child who gets a sponsor shall have a personal JUNIOR BANK ACCOUNT opened up in Kenya Commercial Bank-Jinja branch to enable the sponsors deposit whatever little they get because sometimes not all of them are so rich but have got a compassionate heart of helping the needy. This account shall have two signatories who shall be the caretaker/guardian and a representative from the organization to ensure that the money is properly used and directed towards the cause and also make sure that it benefits the child.
The sponsor shall be receiving receipts of all the expenses, end of school term reports, quarterly child general progress reports and bank statements from the bankers.
