Thank you for transforming so many lives!

We asked and you answered. Thanks to your commitment and passion for our cause, we found sponsors for 1,600+ kids in September!

All of these kids now have the support, confidence and opportunities they need to keep striving and making big changes in their lives. It’s also exciting that you’ve helped enrich the lives of 1,600+ sponsors, through the experience of watching their child grow up healthy, educated, empowered and employed.

Thank you for proving that, together, we’re unstoppable.

“The one-on-one connection is incredible. I can see so much of what sponsorship is doing. I want to be a person in Juan’s life who supports and believes in him. I’m glad that he knows he has someone in his life he can rely on outside of his family. He's a blessing.”

- Lexi S., CI sponsor since 2017

A few years ago, I looked through many photos of children waiting for a sponsor. Most of the children were smiling, but then I saw a six-year-old girl who was not. A little angry, a little sad, certainly not hopeful. Who would sponsor her? I decided that I would. It took a few years, but I was thrilled to finally see her photo with a smile and sparkling eyes. Now she looks more mature and even writes me in English. I am delighted to have a regular exchange of letters.

larrydixon - Thank you. We'll try our best! :)
lnamie - Sounds you both smile when thinking of each other. :) We appreciate that you write to her - maybe not as much as she does! Have you ever thought about planning a visit with her? Thank you for brightening her world, for all your support and for sharing your story!

Made me smile. And I played it several times, and kept on smiling! It's a blessing to be part of this network.

I've been a sponsor for 5+ years, and have seen the transformation in my own (eleven) sponsored kids. I've visited 8 of them, and plan another visit in a year or so to meet them all. Most gratifying thing I've ever done.

I am so happy to hear that more children are being sponsored! We have been sponsoring a child in Ecuador for many years and it has been a wonderful experience. My daughter ended up spending a bridge year before college in Ecuador so she was able to visit Lidia and her father while there - such a thrill for both my daughter, Lidia, and her father! My daughter returned to Ecuador again this past summer and visited Lidia for the second time and was able to meet her mother as well. Children International does such as amazing job helping the children and we're so grateful to have found such a great organization! Thank you CI for all that you do!!!

I have been a sponsor for 14 years I had as many of 12 at one time. Now is 8. I'm glad to help out and make a difference in their lives.
I know the struggle is real and love to see the changes of improvement. The smile and letters I received.
Is the best thing I ever done.
I always say
Make someone's day everyday
