I have been sponsoring children through this organization for almost ten years. I did my due diligence by checking out Children International (CI) through several rating agencies and found them to be very reputable. More than 80% of the revenues received by them are used to help impoverished children and their families. The one on one sponsorship with each child has been very rewarding and watching them grow-up is truly an amazing experience and you can see the impact sponsorship has given the children as well as their families who are very grateful. You get letters, yearly pictures and you are encouraged to visit if you want too. I did visit my first child I sponsored and I am planning to visit the five I sponsor now in the near future. CI also has a social network called Lift One where other sponsors share their experiences and updates on their children. Jim Cook the CEO is very smart and all the staff at CI are very caring and helpful when the need is there to contact them.
