Why Child Sponsorship?
Many Arkansas children are growing up with hunger, poverty, abuse, and a lack on many levels. Their future is often decided by where they were born and the resources they are given early in life.
In Matthew 19:3, Jesus says “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Together we can remove any hinderance to these precious children hearing and experiencing the love of the Father. It’s while these children are still young that we can best show them that there is a Father who loves them, who wants so much more for their lives, and a introduce them to a Savior who died so that they may experience eternal life! This is even more pressing in a world where the image of a father has been tarnished and in many cases completely destroyed.
What does Child Sponsorship Provide?
When you commit to becoming a sponsor, you are giving $1 per day ($30 per month) to provide impacting, supportive services for a child. Your $30 covers free daily after school and summer programs. Your child will have daily access to:
- a snack and full dinner
- homework tutoring
- Bible/Life lessons
- fun games, sports & activities
- a loving staff of coaches and volunteers
- and a safe place to call home-base
Your support makes special moments like new school supplies, personalized birthday cakes and Christmas gifts possible. As your sponsorship continues it will provide funding to bring in other needed resources such as reading coaches, special education resources, counseling resources, and more.
Build a relationship, be an encourager!
You have the opportunity to build relationships through letters of encouragement and even visits with your child at the ARDC. Your level of involvement is at your discretion, however your involvement has the power to make a life-changing difference for a child and in the life of their family.
As a Child Sponsor you will receive quarterly updates, a picture, and personal responses from your child to any letters you write. Never will we share your contact information with your child. Child Sponsorship allows you to help meet a child’s needs and be a positive influence in a structured, secure, and strategic way.
We are thankful for your time and prayerful consideration of becoming a Child Sponsor.
