Sponsor a Child Saturday

Check out children we’ve recently featured on facebook for #SponsoraChildSaturday

What does my Sponsorship provide?

In the rural areas of Guatemala, more than 75% of Indigenous people live in poverty. Many children don’t complete elementary school. At a Vida school, Christian teachers – many of whom were once Vida students themselves – are personally involved in your student’s life on a daily basis. We reach out to your child’s family and encourage them to be involved in a local church. Our leaders, teachers and support staff provide godly role models to help your child know the Lord and become all that He intends for them to be!

Your investment of $45/month helps break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy for your child by providing:

  • a broad academic education at one of our Vida Christian schools
  • a daily nutritious meal and vitamins
  • medical care through the Vida Clinic for your child’s whole family
  • Christian discipleship and mentoring
  • a school uniform and new shoes

(some of these services are also funded through other gifts to Impact Ministries)

Your sponsor child is also blessed by your prayers and encouragement!

You can sponsor your child throughout their time in our Vida Schools. For most of our students, this is until they graduate in Grade 10. Some students continue on to our teacher training program, and they can be sponsored through Grade 13. We have many sponsors who have been faithful in supporting their child through their entire education! When your child leaves the Vida School program, we will let you know and offer you a new child to sponsor.

How do I choose a child to sponsor?

  1. Click “See Available Sponsor Children” to see our students still waiting for a sponsor like you
  2. Personally select your sponsor child from all our students available for sponsorship
  3. Once you click “Sponsor this Child”, you’ll be prompted to login or signup to our sponsorsoft system to complete the sponsorship process.  There, you’ll have access to your child’s picture and online information package
  4. Don’t forget to set up your monthly sponsorship donation within 48 hrs to ensure that you are matched with the child that you have chosen

How can I communicate with my child?

Communication with your sponsor child is easy through our Sponsorsoft System!

Log in to Sponsorsoft with the email address you used to sponsor your child, and click on messages > compose message to write to your child. You can even attach a picture!

You will receive a yearly letter from your child and a photo update of your child participating in learning activities from your child’s teacher. Our teachers are also great at helping their students answer your letters!
