Primary Infant Sponsor:
Become the primary sponsor for a severely malnourished infant.
This sponsorship lasts one full year. It covers all medical care with our pediatrician including laboratory work and medications necessary throughout the year. It also includes weekly nutritional assessments, weekly health education classes for the mother, access to water and a water filter for the entire family, and products for weight gain such as formula, bottles, and vitamins. Plus, a new kitchen with a custom wood burning stove – directing harmful smoke from cooking through a chimney and out of the home.
This commitment is $85 a month for 12 months.
The sponsor will be given a name, photos, and a history of the infant and family. They will also be added to an exclusive Facebook group for updates and photos, will also receive quarterly updates via email on progress, and can by skyped in for weigh-ins and meeting the momma!
Once on our online giving page, note $85 and select “Monthly” in the Payment Frequency drop-down menu.
Supplemental Infant Sponsor:
Many infants in our program develop needs beyond the primary sponsor’s coverage. The infant’s history of severe malnutrition can often cause delayed development requiring physical therapy, neurology appointments, and more.
We also have infants where underlying conditions are discovered such as heart defects, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, or the need for surgery. A supplemental sponsor will be assigned to an infant that has a primary sponsor but has moved from a “high risk status” to “Critical Needs” and the supplemental sponsorship allows for those critical needs to be met by funding surgeries, echocardiograms, appointments with specialists, physical therapy and more.
This commitment is $45 a month for 12 months.
The supplemental sponsor will be given a name, photos and history of the infant and family. They will also receive updates via email every quarter on what their supplementation covered and the impact this made on the infant and family.

There are families in our program that live in corn-stalk, sheet rock or pieces of rusted tin patched together. Dirt floors, no windows or doors, and no proper sanitation are large causes of illness. You can sponsor the construction of a brand-new home.
We believe in building quality homes that last generations, not just something “better than what they had”. This means our homes have a foundation, are made with brick and block, concrete floors, flushing toilets, electricity, strong glass windows, and iron doors that lock. We also utilize a lawyer to make sure the family owns the land free and clear.
Currently, we do not host teams to build these homes because there are many local men fighting to provide and are constantly looking for work. We employ these men to build the home, so sponsoring a home also means creating jobs and feeding families.
A home sponsorship is a one-time gift of $3,500.
The sponsor will receive before photos of the home, pictures of the benefiting family and background story, and will receive progress photos, and completion photos.
