Sponsorship provides life transformation. It gets kids from zero to 60; with an education, nutrition, medical care, and regular spiritual input.
It’s often the following projects that start the cycle of transformation as youth are empowered to become self-sustaining, contributing members of their community. But it’s also a great opportunity to disciple your family into valuing the most precious gift of all time: the transforming power in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Consider giving a gift that will transform the life of a child in poverty.
Sponsor a waiting child
Transform a child’s life for $35/month and give them the gift of an education, proper nutrition, medical care, and a discipling relationship with their local church.
Plant seeds of hope
It’s amazing what a resourceful kid can do with some seeds and livestock. From growing their own food to selling eggs in the marketplace, GlobalFingerprints’ Hope Farm project turns a little into a lot for these children.
Share the power of play
Play is an essential part of growing up for children as they learn to explore and live in the world around them. For children in countries where poverty is the norm, the freedom to play is not always a reality. With GlobalFingerprints' Hope Play project, you can provide a chance to play and be a child.
Give the gift of water
No one needs to be told how essential access to clean water is for the holistic well-being of any society. In India, it’s not always available. Contribute to a fund used to dig wells in areas where GlobalFingerprints India kids live.
Assist some very special children
It costs a little more to sponsor children with special needs. Help bridge the gap with a special sponsorship.
Provide shoes for a child’s walk to school
Shoes tend to wear out quickly in the areas our sponsored children live. It’s an almost impossible trek to school without any foot protection. You can provide shoes for children for as little as $20/pair.
Equip a child with school tools
Children in our programs place a high value on their “school tools.” Pencils and notebooks become some of their most prized possessions.
Bibles for Children
Case of 24 Bibles $124: We want all the GlobalFingerprints children to have a Bible, but most cannot afford one.
Wheelchairs for Disabled Children
Wheelchair $250: There are no special services for disabled children. Crippled children simply drag themselves around their village. Graduates of our program build these custom wheelchairs as part of their vocational training.
Protective Fence Section
Protective Fence Section $500: Our Promise Home for disabled GlobalFingerprints children is now open in Congo. Unfortunately, children taunt kids with disabilities so we must put up a privacy fence.
Vocational Training $1,000 per year: Vocational training makes it possible for young people to support themselves as they bridge out of our sponsorship program. Help them learn a trade in masonry, carpentry, cosmetology, sewing or more.
Community Nutrition Program
Community Nutrition Program $250 for one month: We are seeing a troubling spike in malnutrition in Congo. Children have died while waiting to be sponsored. We've begun a meal program to provide protein-rich porridge to malnourished children while they wait to be sponsored.
Trauma Care Training Seminar
Trauma Care Training Seminar $1,000: Most of the children in our program have experienced significant trauma. A trauma care seminar helps our staff know how to best care for and comfort these children.
Give to Trauma Care Seminar >>
Give to the unsponsored children’s fund
Sometimes sponsors need to end their sponsorship. This could leave us in a tight spot since we commit to each child in GlobalFingerprints that we’ll stick with them until they graduate. This fund helps ensure continuity in an unsponsored child’s education and full program benefits until they get a new sponsor.
