2019 Child Sponsorship

As we look toward the next school year, which starts in January, we’d like to do something different. We’d like to find people who will sponsor each of our girls and help us with the costs associated with raising, feeding and educating each of them. Currently, most of their expenses come out of our personal budget.

Each girl has different monthly expenses associated with her schooling, which is specified in the table below. If you, or someone else you know, is interested in sponsoring one of our girls with all or part of their expenses, please let me know.  It would be greatly appreciated and a huge help to us.

To calculate the school costs, I added the cost of books, school supplies and materials, uniforms, a school registration, and a monthly tuition (charged 10 times). Those add up to a year total, which I then spread out over the 10 school months in the column titled “Year/Month”. Finally, we spend $60 a month on food for each of them. And the “Month Total” is the school costs plus the food costs.

We also spend $100 a month for the weekly breakfasts and dinners that we provide to the shoe shiners and other people in our park. Please let me know if you, or someone else you know, is interested in sponsoring someone. Thanks!
