• What children can be sponsored?
    • Children that live in our Orphan Care Homes and Special Needs Home, or who attend our school are apart of the sponsorship program.
  • Can I pick the child I want to sponsor?
    • Sponsors may request the gender and/or age range of a child, and then children most in need of a sponsor are given first priority when being paired with a sponsor.
  • How much does sponsorship cost?
    • Sponsorship costs $35/month/child
  • Will I be the only person sponsoring the child?
    • It takes several sponsors to fully fund a child’s care. Sponsorship donations are pooled together to provide for all the children in our program. While you won’t be the only sponsor, you will receive personalized letters and cards from the child you sponsor.
  • How does sponsorship benefit the child?
    • Sponsorship provides food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, and discipleship to children in our program. Most of all, you will be sharing love and hope with your sponsored child. When you sponsor a child, you have the opportunity to invest in the life of a future leader of Haiti.
  • How long can my sponsorship last?
    • As long as a child is in our programs, you can be their sponsor! Many children will graduate from our primary school, but some will go on to higher education through college or vocational training. As the child approaches graduation, you will be notified of the plans for the future and given the opportunity to give towards their higher education, if you choose.
  • What do I do if I need to cancel my sponsorship?
    • If you need to cancel your sponsorship at any time, please contact our stateside office at usoffice@danitaschildren.org or call 615-721-8433.
  • How can I communicate with the child I sponsor?
    • In order to safeguard the privacy and security of our children, communication between a sponsor and child is only be allowed through letter writing. Email, Facebook messaging, and other forms of electronic message will not be permitted, as they do not enable house parents, who are responsible for the security and wellbeing of the children, to easily view and monitor such correspondence. Some sponsors like to send a little memento with their letter.  You can include stickers, bookmarks, and photos – pictures are treasured possessions. Your child wants to see what you look like, too! Please send letters to PO Box 23270 Nashville, TN 37202.
  • May I send gifts to my child?
    • We can no longer accept physical gifts for individual children. There are a number of reasons, including difficulties of coordinating shipping and receiving, the hefty customs fees we are charged, and the fact that not all children get gifts from sponsors, which creates inequity situations.  Therefore for individual gifts for children for birthdays, graduation, and Christmas we can accept only monetary gifts. As for gift amounts, we ask that birthday and Christmas gifts not exceed $25 each, and graduation gifts not exceed $100.  With these monies, children will be given the opportunity to visit the local village to shop for a gift, or they can save their money for their future education!  Monetary gifts can be sent by check to PO Box 864311 Orlando, FL 32886 or online at: www.danitaschildren.org/sponsor-a-child
  • When will my sponsor child receive my letter?
    • Letters are sent to Haiti on a monthly basis. Please allow 4-6 weeks for your child to receive their letter.
  • Will my child write to me?
    • Yes! When you become a sponsor you will receive a photo and some general information on your child. Each year you will receive a new school photo, annual updates, program updates, and special communications!
  • My credit card has expired, how do I update?
