The child sponsorship program keeps our school alive. Sponsoring a child costs $35 a month, providing our students:
•meal a day
•textbooks and supplies
The sponsorship program also allows us to pay the teachers and staff a fair salary. The school currently employs 50+ people, including a kitchen staff and grounds keepers, and is the largest employer in Simonette. Touch of Hope also provides the funds for the buildings and upkeep of the school. We are always seeking long term partners and sponsors.
As part of the sponsorship program, we work very hard at keeping you updated about the school and your child. We try to send out updated photos each year. Every year at Christmas we also give you, the sponsor, an option to send $20 extra for your child to receive a Christmas present. We buy everything locally so the presents include a new back pack stuffed full with goodies: pencils, notebooks, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, toys, candy, etc. Last year we delivered 120 presents! Feel free to also send letters, photos, or small gifts and we will have them delivered. If you ever come and visit us, we will also make sure you have the opportunity to meet your child and visit his or her home. It’s all about a relationship!
