Frequently Asked QuestionsView all FAQ's
What is an Acres of Hope sponsor?
A sponsor is someone like you who has made the decision to personally invest in the life of a child in need. More than this, you can help your sponsored child develop a sense of confidence and self-worth with the love you express through letters and prayers. As a sponsor, you can develop a real connection with the specific child you support. The child you sponsor will know your name, write to you, and pray for you. Your relationship with your sponsored child makes you a very important person who has a significant role in his or her development. You stand alongside teachers, staff, family and friends who are taking an active role in encouraging and developing the child.
Will I be the only person sponsoring the child I'm helping?
Yes. The child you're helping has just one sponsor: You. That's why your prayers, letters and support mean so much to your sponsored child. Even if you choose to sponsor a child as a family or a group (for example, a youth group or a Sunday school class), the child you help will still be relating to your family or group as his or her only sponsor. No other group or individual will also sponsor the child you help.
How much does it cost to sponsor a child?
The cost is only $50 per month and provides School Fees, School Supplies, Uniforms, Shoes, Food, Clean Water, Shelter and Health Care.
What our Sponsors Say
Kati, Northway Church, TexasI wasn't sure what to expect when arriving in Uganda for the first time. I quickly realized that these are special people, unlike any other. Acres of Hope is a light in the dark and I am so excited to not only continue working with Geoffrey, but also sweet Priscilla. I connected with her from the beginning and felt led to sponsor her. I can wait to watch her grow and see how the Lord works in her life. This is only the beginning!
Derek, KSSaying our goodbyes was definitely the hardest part of the entire trip. It was even more difficult because Samson was really struggling with me leaving. It is truly amazing the bond that you build with a child that you sponsor. For that child, you are their family. You will never be able to understand how important you are to that child. Many tears were shed as we drove away for the last time.
Pat, West UMC, NCBeing a sponsor of Yona is more than just about money, it is about making a difference and offering hope. It is about the love between us, through letters we offer each other words of encouragement, love, and prayers.
