Sponsor a Child
Sponsoring a child is one of the most direct ways you can change the life of a young person in need. Children in Honduras, Argentina, Tanzania and in Guyana need your help. By sponsoring a child, you become their “Padrino” or godparent. Your annual $360 donation goes directly to that child’s daily needs including education, books, food, clothes and medical expenses. Every year you will receive two letters from your child with a recent photograph. You can correspond with your child through our US office and get to know them as they grow and benefit through your generosity.
To sponsor a child, simply click one the links below. You will be taken to a PayPal page to complete your sponsorship order either by setting up a recurring donation of $30 a month or by donating $360 to sponsor a child for a full year.
We currently have sponsorship programs at six different locations in four different countries. The programs are listed below.
- Amigos de Jesús Hogar de Ninos in Santa Barbara, Honduras (our primary mission)
- Copprome in El Progeso de Yoro, Honduras
- Santa Monica Bilingual School in Vida Nueva Cortes, Honduras
- St. John Bosco in Plaisance, Guyana
- Guarderia Virgen del Valle in Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Holy Redeemer School, Tanzania
When you register to sponsor a child, you will be allocated a child according to greatest need. If you have a particular location in mind for your sponsorship, please indicate so by sending an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can appropriately allocate your sponsorship.
Communication between the Godparent and Godchild is an important part of the Sponsor-A-Child program. Correspondence will help to create a special bond between you and your Godchild and will encourage a loving relationship. Please see our fact sheet with all the information you need on Communicating with your Child.
Spanish is the primary language at Amigos de Jesús and at the other homes that receive support from our organization in Honduras. Please see our fact sheet with a few Helpful Spanish Phrases you may want to include in your communication.
Amigos de Jesús has developed a Friends Fund so that Godparents can contribute gifts directly to their child. The Friends Fund provides individual gifts for your child on their birthday and on Christmas. Money from this fund also supports excursions and special events at the hogar. Please see our fact sheet about the Amigos Friends Fund to learn how to contribute.
Sandy Ciccaglione -- I was very lucky and blessed one day at my church. We had a guest speaker, Father Dennis, who after about 5 minutes had me in tears by telling us about the former struggles of the children who came to the Amigos de Jesús Hogar. I have sponsored Yadira since she was 8, I think... and she is now 13. Read More...
Michael Pascarella, Jr. -- Susan and I have had a total of four foster children from Amigos over the last 11 years. One of them was Cristian Armando . Cristian was/is a wonderful boy with a big, bright smile that reaches from ear to ear. Read More...
