What Is Child Sponsorship?
Our Child Sponsorship Program connects generous donors with children in difficult situations beyond their control. Your monthly donation provides our students with targeted support, including:
- Free, nutritious lunch 5 days a week
- Breakfast and Dinner Stipends
- School Supplies
- First Aid & Medical Care
- Family and Personal counseling from professional social workers
- Needs Based Assistance
Unlike many other sponsor a child programs around the world, Phare Ponleu Selpak runs a responsible Collective Sponsorship Program.
What Is Collective Sponsorship?
Our approach to child sponsorship puts the needs of the child first. Through our collective sponsorship model, the donations from our dedicated sponsors are gathered in a communal pool. This way, we provide targeted support to the largest number of children possible.
Collective Sponsorship is the ethical choice for sponsorship programs. By eliminating the direct one to one relationship, accountability is removed from the children. Instead we the supporters are accountable to the children. As a sponsor, you will receive stories of hope and change from all the children in the program.
Can You Trust Phare Ponleu Selpak?
Yes. Phare Ponleu Selpak has been supporting and defending the rights of our children and students since 1994. Our dedicated team of social workers travel into our community every day to meet with children and parents. The social workers strive to ensure that the needs of the children are met, and that the care is of consistently high quality.
100% of the money donated through our Child Sponsorship Program goes directly to the programs mentioned above. For greater financial transparency, please view the financial section of our most recent Annual Report.
What Happens After You Join?
Our sponsors are integral members of the Phare Family. 7 to 10 days after you join our Sponsorship Program you will receive a personalized thank you note from our dedicated staff. Members of our sponsorship program receive an exclusive newsletter every 3 months that includes reports, updates on policy, and stories from the children.
