One of the ways we do this is by school sponsorship for Elementary and High School Students. The students we sponsor come from homes where going school is not an option or places extreme stress on the family.
This is a great way to show love. Many of the parents are amazed that someone would care for their children enough to sponsor them. The generosity of donors impacts the lives of the children in a multi-faceted way.
So what does the child receive? When you give for sponsorship, you cover school materials, school fees, school bag, school shoes and quarterly fun afternoons - parties/outings for a child. This also includes spiritual enrichment, medical assistance and a project & clothing allowance. Additionally there is an after-school Jesus club for Elementary students and Kids Academy (both held once a week). Kids Academy gives kids an opportunity for growth in extra-curricular activities as well as reading in English. For high-schoolers, we have youth night where they join with other young people to enjoy God.
The whole family is shown love and support, through visiting and quarterly family life/parenting afternoons.
This has taken on a whole new look with the arrival of COVID. Children are not permitted to attend school, however they will do modules of learning in workbooks at home. Our emphasis with the sponsorship has changed to reflect the season with an increase in their medical allowance, more food support for the family. As the needs unfold we will adjust to see the child supported in the best way possible through this time.
This amount can be given as a one-off donation or in monthly amounts.
Annual giving of $NZ300 ($25 a month) or $US240 ($20 a month) to sponsor a child, makes a big difference
Thank you for your love.
His Heart Ministries endeavours to show the love of the Father to the poorest of the poor, and those that are hurting and broken.
