More About Esmerlin

How does child sponsorship work?

Sponsorship is a monthly giving program that provides Esmerlin access to life-changing benefits, like medical care, educational support, life skills and job-training before graduation.

As Esmerlin's sponsor, you can exchange messages and pictures, as well as share encouragement, support and hope for the future. You may even find that your own life has been impacted, too. Check out what other people say about sponsorship.

By sponsoring Esmerlin, you're teaming up with our amazing local staff and volunteers in the Dominican Republic: doctors, nurses, teachers and tutors (to name just a few who work at our community centers). What's a community center, you ask? Great question ... find out more here!
