We have been sponsoring children thru Children International for 17 years. We have had the pleasure of watching a number of kids grow and graduate from the program. Children International does a wonderful job of keeping you informed about your sponsored child, as well as keeping you connected with them thru letters to and from them. They are also very easy to contact with any questions or concerns and prompt in replying. It's very rewarding to know that you are able to help disadvantaged children in the world, and their families, have the necessities that they wouldn't have had otherwise. It's also wonderful that you can provide a better future for them. We highly recommend Children International as a stellar charitable organization to consider if you are thinking of sponsoring a child in need.

YO FELIZMENTE APADRINO A 4 HERMOSOS NI;OS, ME ENCANTA RECIBIR SUS CARTAS, ES ALGO QUE ME ESTUSIASMA TANTO CUANDO VEO QUE TENGO ALGUNA DE ELLOS. ME GUSTA PLATICARLES SOBRE MI Y QUE ME PLATIQUEN SOBRE ELLOS, NOS MOTIVAMOS MUTUAMENTE SOBRE ALGO QUE ESTEMOS HACIENDO Y NOS PLATICAMOS SOBRE LO QUE NOS GUSTA HACER, YO TENGO EN ESTE PROGRAMA SOLO ALGUNOS A;OS PERO ESTOY FELIZ DE QUE DIOS ME DE LA OPORTUNIDAD DE AYUDARLOS Y DE CONVIVIR CON ELLOS AUNQUE SEA POR MEDIOS ELECTRONICOS. ESPERO QUE MUCHAS MAS PERSONAS SE ANIMEN A AYUDAR A TANTO NI;O QUE REQUIERE DE NOSOTROS. QUE DIOS LOS BENDIGA A TODOS.

I have been sponsoring with Children International since 1989. I currently sponsor two girls, one in Zambia and one in the Dominican Republic. I can't say enough good things about how this organization has enriched my life by providing some basic necessities to these children. The CI staff is absolutely amazing. In my 27 years as sponsorship, I've received two personal visits from the staff when they were working in the area I live in, just to thank me for my support.

My husband and I sponsored a child for a year. We have thoroughly enjoyed the consistent and meaningful contact with V. We can no longer continue, however we will resume as soon as we are able to. The Children International team has been extremely supportive. We therefore look forward to the day when we can resume! In the meantime, we encourage everyone that can and cares about our children to become a sponsor! Best.

I have been a sponsor for almost a year, and this is the BEST thing I have ever done. I absolutely love getting letters, drawings, and pictures from my little one. Volunteers and staff are so friendly and helpful. Excellent organization.

Always informative and helpful. Have been working with them for 30 years. I believe this organization provides the most per dollar donated compared to others.
