CHF strives to improve the holistic wellbeing of children, rooted in community, by specifically emphasizing physical, mental and spiritual development.  Together with our partners, we hope to create environments that exceed the basic needs of children, recognizing their inherent dignity, and giving them the gift of play again.

Child sponsorship is one of the ways we act out this vision.  In pairing a sponsor with a specific child, we are not only able to provide the child with food, clothing, education and medical care, but also give both sponsor and child a relational connection unlike any other.  Sponsors are encouraged to exchange letters, pictures and gifts with their child and even to visit their sponsored child during one of our trips.  As a result, the children not only get education, daily meals and shelter but also know that they are cared for and loved.

Our program functions as a sustenance program.  It is crafted in a way that offers much needed assistance to families in poverty, without creating a cycle of dependence.  We run the sponsorship program in 3 regions in Uganda and 2 regions in Haiti.  In each region, the objectives of sponsorship remain the same, however the implementation looks different based on the specific cultural and physical needs of the children in that area.

BEING A SPONSOR IS LIFE-CHANGING AS YOU DEVELOP A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CHILD AND WELCOME HIM/HER INTO YOUR FAMILY FROM AFAR.
