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.

Fantastic, reliable and trustworthy organization that has made a tremendous difference in the lives of so many impoverished children. I have been a sponsor for nearly 10 years, and I currently have 3 sponsored children, with aims to get more. In the meantime, I inform all my friends and relatives of this great movement. Hope everyone joins in to change the world!

A great way to help children in poverty all over the world, so they can have the education and health they have rights. I received many times a letter from her mother (since she's a little girl that still dont learn how to write.), but also a drawing she made for me =), so touching!

I've been sponsoring a beautiful girl for four years now, and time just flies. It's been the easiest process, they are always reaching out to you as a company for you to get the best service, and this is only the backgorund of the company.
I think that creating and providing such an easy way to help someone from my country and my community it's just the best thing in the world. I fully recommend Children International as an incredibly easy way to help a child out. Sometimes I think it is even too good to be true but I'm thankfull everyday to be able to sponsor someone with this organization and to be able to help in such an easy way.

I've been sponsoring a child since February 2011 and I've had nothing but absolutely POSITIVE experiences with "Children International". Such organization is always extremely prompt and professional, when it comes to assisting me, responding any inquiry and keeping me informed about my sponsored child. I highly recommend "Children International" for anyone who wishes to support the development of a child in need.

I've been sponsoring several children with CI for almost a year now. Their "Care Team" always answer my questions and so far they have been a pleasure to deal with. To date, I have received updates about the children's living conditions, new yearly photos, educational reports (which I requested) as well as several letters from each child. I have also sent a few "Extra Gifts" (donations that go directly to my sponsored children and their families), which they can use to buy the things they need) and received a report telling me how the family used the money (with photos) as well as a letter from the child expressing their thanks. I plan to stay with CI for a long time to come. Also, to anyone who wonders how their sponsorship money is used - it's all on their website. Click on "About Sponsorship" at the top of the page and then "Benefits of Sponsorship" to learn what the children get and/or "Where Your Donation Goes" to learn how the money you donate is handled.

Tengo más de 1 año siendo padrino de Jesús, un niño que en marzo cumplirá 7 años. Hace apenas unas semanas nos conocimos y desde el principio nos llevamos muy bien. Platicamos mucho, jugamos y pude convivir con él y su mamá. Nos acompañó una trabajadora social muy amable que nos ayudó mucho. La visita se pudo hacer hasta ahora porque el Equipo de Children International es muy cuidadoso para que ambas partes, tanto el niño como el padrino estén seguros en todos los sentidos, detalle que me parece valioso e importante. El poder ayudar a un niño que lo necesita me hace sentir contento y espero más personas que puedan hacerlo, lo hagan.

Does anyone know if as a sponsored parent you can search for the parents of your sponsored child on social media?
