    What is child sponsorship program?

    Child sponsorship allows you as an individual or a group of individuals to financially support the education, nutrition and health needs of your sponsored child. The regular contributions you make as a sponsor will contribute to the holistic development of the child until the child is self sufficient. Your sponsorship will impact not only the life of a child but also the livelihood of the child’s family and community.

    Is there a specific age for a child to be sponsored?

    Children enter our sponsorship program between the ages of 3 and10 years and stay on till the age of 21years.

    Can I write to my sponsored child?

    You are encouraged to write to your sponsored child to get to know him/her and their family better. Your sponsored child will also write to you and if he/she is too young to write, our staff will assist them. This can be a rewarding experience both for you and your sponsored child.

    Will I be writing directly to my sponsored child?

    No, as per our Child protection guidelines all communications to your child should be addressed to ‘The Sponsor Relations Department’ Help A Child of India, Post Box No-3480 Anna Nagar West, Chennai- 600 040.
