Child Sponsorship

Child Sponsorship

FVA has got a long track record in child sponsorship programs in the community through which
250 children have benefited. FVA is currently implementing child sponsorship programs in
Rusororo – Gasabo and Ruheru in Nyaruguru. FVA’s approach is working with the community
to identify children who need support. Our main focus is to improve the well-being of children in
need, especially the most vulnerable through catering for their needs by linking them to sponsors
to support them. Through this program, FVA undertakes the following activities :

  1. Conduct assessments in the community to identify the most vulnerable children.
  1. Select the most vulnerable children to support in partnership with the local leaders.
  2. Child profiling (taking photos, recording date of birth, weight and height, family history,
  3. environment, education level and progress, health status).
  4. Linking children to sponsors who pay for their school education.
  5. Translate letters between sponsors and the children.
  6. Develop a data base of all children under the sponsorship program.
  7. Conduct monthly child monitoring
  8. Update the children’s profile if there are changes in their status
