Schools Find Sponsorship Teaches Valuable Lessons
Teachers are learning that sponsoring a child in another country offers valuable lessons to their students. By becoming sponsors, states Terry Antelman, Friends of the Orphans Sponsorship Coordinator, students take a personal interest in learning about social differences, geography, languages, caring for others, earning and donating money, and most importantly, our responsibility for Christian stewardship."
Some students earn money to support sponsoring a child by:
Holding car washes and bake sale
We're proud of the following schools and youth groups that recently began sponsorship programs:
In all, over 50 children have been sponsored through the school program during the past few months.
If you know of a class or youth group that would be interested in sponsoring a child, corresponding and learning more about a different culture, contact Terry at 480-967-9449 or 1-800-528-6455, or email her at
