This is one of our most successful projects. Eight years ago we started with 35 elementary school students. Today, we have 290 children that HELP Foundation is sponsoring. Sponsors come from 25 States in the USA, France, Korea, Germany, Australia and Guam. Our most recent sponsors, David & Karlun Callanan have taken on the responsibility to educate 30 children! The cost to sponsor a child is $135/year and every dollar goes to the child. Most child sponsorship programs require a minimum of $20.00 per month to sponsor a child. Our program charges $11.25/month. We can do that because we have no administrative charge for our services. If a child is sponsored by HELP Foundation, he/she receives annually a new book bag, an umbrella, a school uniform, new shoes, a weekly allowance for lunch and payment of all school expenses. To my knowledge no other foundation is able to do this for $11.25/month.
Since we are a small foundation, we have place a ceiling of 300 children that we can sponsor. We are quickly approaching that number.
