In the June 2013 issue of Christianity Today, results of researcher Dr. Bruce Wydick were published concerning the effectiveness of child sponsorship. The article included this summary:
“…we find that sponsorship results in better educational outcomes for children. Overall, sponsorship makes children 27 to 40% more likely to complete secondary school, and 50 to 80% more likely to complete a university education. Child sponsorship also appears to be the great equalizer in education…”
Dr Wydick found the spiritual aspect of sponsorship might be intrinsic to transforming children’s lives.
When we sponsor a child, we take a little bit of money, pair it with the little bit of opportunity we have in this life, and we work to make an eternal difference. This is exactly the way Jesus teaches us all money is to be used.
Sign up to change a child’s story from one of poverty to one of possibility and hope. Here are links to our mission partners website pages about sponsoring a child.
