Turning RISK into
The goal of sponsorship is to help break the cycle of poverty so these precious girls can step into the future equipped with a good education and a well-founded hope in Christ. Thank you for accepting the challenge to impact their lives. You are a valued partner as we work together to be instruments of God’s love.
Here are some questions that come up most often when people are considering sponsorship:
Would I be able to communicate with my sponsored girl?
We encourage you to send your sponsored girl a personal or family photograph and a short letter of introduction. We will translate your introduction letter. Your sponsored girl will benefit from knowing that someone is interested in her and keeping her in prayer. Your words of encouragement will make a big difference to her.
You can find periodic update about the girl’s progress on One Hope Ministries face book page.
Can I send a gift for a sponsored girl?
Sponsors may wish to do something extra for their sponsored girl by sending gifts. Unfortunately, due to high prices and unreliable mail, we cannot receive packages for your sponsored girl.
Can I visit the ministry to meet a sponsored girl?
We would not be able to arrange this type of meeting at this time.
How long is a sponsorship?
The girls at One Hope Ministries must earn her program scholarship each year. As long as she continues to do well in her education, she is able to continue in the program. We recognize that sponsors' circumstances sometimes change. It is our hope that you will be able to continue in your support of your sponsored girl until she completes High School.
How will my sponsorship help a sponsored girl?
The sponsored girl will receive opportunities and services that most of the world’s poorest will simply never see. These opportunities and services include the following:
Private school tuition, other school fees, uniforms, schoolbooks, supplies, transportation and school outings as well as encouragement. How should I pray for a sponsored girl? Your prayers for your sponsored girl are vital. Please pray that she will experience God’s love, be healthy, safe and do well in school. Please also pray that she and her family will understand that our motivation to serve them is by our faith in Jesus and our desire to reflect God’s unconditional love.
Will there be more than one sponsor for each girl in the program?
Yes. The girl you're helping will have several sponsors to cover all of her educational needs. Although she will have more sponsors, she will be able to relate to you, your family or group through your introduction letter and photo.
Is sponsorship tax-deductible?
Yes. All contributions to One Hope Ministries are tax-deductible in the USA.
