How it works
Children are put forward for sponsorship by teachers, volunteers, iThemba staff or parents. We interview them to understand a little about their lives. Then our Outreach Worker visits each child that is interviewed at home to understand their home situation. This helps us to decide whether the student really needs sponsorship and if they are a high, medium or low priority for sponsorship. We create a sponsorship sheet for each child that needs sponsorship.
There are different reasons why a child would need sponsoring. Some of them are orphans, some are abused by their parents or caregivers, others have alcoholic parents or suffer themselves from diseases (are malnourished, epileptic, have eye problems and so on).
If you want to sponsor a child, all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know if you have a preference for sponsoring a boy or girl and the age of the child. We will send a profile of a student over to you. You could also select a child yourself that you want to sponsor on our sponsorship page.
Payment can be made either yearly (€250) or monthly (€21) into our Leraren Zonder Grenzen account. For more details see our Donations section on our contribute page. However, when you mail us about sponsoring a child, we will provide you all the information.
Afterwards, we will send you an update on your sponsored child every 3 months so you can see how they are getting on.
