Child Sponsorship Faqs

How much does it cost?
Roots & Wings offers 4 different levels of sponsorship ranging from $30 a month to $120 a month to allow you to pick an amount that works within your budget.

Will my child have other sponsors?
Yes. Each child may have up to 4 sponsors. Roots & Wings’ sponsorship program is set up so that all money donated through sponsorship covers expenses for all children enrolled in our program.

Why does my sponsorship not go directly to support my child?
Roots & Wings accepts children based on need and all children in the program receive the same benefits, regardless of whether they have been chosen for sponsorship. So your sponsorship has an even greater impact as it helps give every child at Roots & Wings much-needed love and care.

How long does my sponsorship last?
Sponsorship is a long-term commitment. Normally, a child will remain in Roots & Wings program until they have finished primary school. Occasionally, circumstances will arise and a child will leave the program. In such cases, you will be notified and given the option to transfer your sponsorship to another child.

Can I write my sponsored child?
Yes! We encourage communication with your sponsored child and their family. Click here for more info.

Can I send my sponsored child a gift?
Moderate, practical gifts are permitted on special occasions such as Christmas and birthdays. Our goal is to foster independence with our families, and large gifts work against that goal. For more information on sending a gift, click here.
