Why is sponsorship a “very good investment”?

A visit helps you understand the difference you’re making through sponsorshipimg33

World Vision India child sponsor Girland and his family had a chance to visit their sponsored children. Girland, his wife and two children met their four sponsored children in Bangalore for the first time. Having received a warm welcome from the families, they got to hear from the children, their families and other community members about the work that World Vision India was doing. Then the sponsor took them out for lunch and had a heartfelt conversation with them.


img22In the words of Girland,

“We met the children that we sponsor and various other children too. We are all very extremely pleased to see how well the children are being brought up and looked after by both their families and World Vision India. And we think that it’s a very, very good investment in these young kids’ future. We look forward to continuing our involvement with the programmes and obviously growing the number of children we sponsor.

And we are very appreciative of all the work that World Vision is doing, the volunteers that they have and the very dedicated staff that they have that contribute to these children’s well-being.”

      Hi Reshma, we encourage every sponsor to visit their sponsored child, so they can see the impact of their support in the life of the child, his or her family and community. However, due to practical reasons, it may not be possible for all sponsors.

    I would like to know the whereabouts of the 5 children’s that I had sponsored. I had already asked about that and till date I could not get any answer. Me as a sponsor has the right to know about the he impact that happened when I had sponsored. And it’s your responsibility to be transparent. If you had not received or not read that mail I am giving further one more chance to show the transparency. Thanks regards
