How does sponsorship show God's love to children and families?



We at VOCORI are led and guided by God’s love and His Word. His Word is the light of our paths in all that we do in relieving the suffering of the poor by restoring their dignity. Our paths are led by scriptures such as-

Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 1 John 3: 18

Let everything you do be done in love (true love to God and man as inspired by God's love for us). 1 Corinthians 16: 14

He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. 1 John 4: 8

I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. John 13:34

Will I be updated on my sponsored family's progress?



You will receive yearly updates of the progress of the family you sponsor. The updates will inform you of the specific ways in which your gifts are helping the family. We will send to you- a family photograph, a report on the performance of children at school and their wellbeing in general and the impact of family sponsorship in their community.

How long will my sponsorship last?



VOCORI’s mission is to relief the suffering of the poor, therefore as the dignity of a family and their community is restored which is feasible through issues like being self-reliant, we may move to another community.

This implies that your sponsorship may last several months or many years. When VOCORI takes on a new community as a partner in restoring their dignity, you will be given the opportunity to be the channel of restoration to a different family by sponsoring them.

Child sponsorship may last till a child not only finishes schooling, but also trains or learns a skill. However, the circumstances of a sponsor may change and thereby is free to discontinue the sponsorship program, and VOCORI will look out for other sponsors.



How important is prayer in child sponsorship?


Prayer is a spiritual crucial link between sponsors and the children they help. As you fing out more about the living situation of your sponsored child or family, you may be led to pray for specific needs in their lives.

In addition to this, your prayers for the health, safety, education and spiritual development of your child are important. Sponsored children are greatly encouraged when they hear that their sponsors are praying for them.

A sponsored child is grateful to God for the gift of a sponsor in his or her life, and therefore together with his or her family and the church, join in prayer on behalf of the sponsor. And finally, we at VOCORI count on your prayers to enable us to be faithful stewards accountable to our Master and also to succeed in our assignment.
