Sponsor a Child 

"Small change for us big change for the kids" 

It costs less than $1 a day to sponsor a child. $360 per year.


The situation in Colombia is becoming critical for the private orphanages.

Additional sponsors are urgently needed for Chiquitines, La Casita de Nicolas and FANA.


The revised ICBF requirements of determining the legal status of children in care are causing immense delays and stretching the financial resources of all the homes.  The orphanages are struggling to survive.  


If you are yet to sponsors a child, please do so asap. Please encourage other families members, work colleagues, friends, your child's classroom teacher to do the same.


For information about our sponsorship program visit our site or contact Martel Green our sponsorship coordinator -
