  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions about Child Sponsorship

     

    What does it cost to sponsor a child?
    A regular commitment of $30 a month, or $360 a year for a child in a community school, or minimum commitment of $45 a month, $540 a year, for a Choir member, lasting for the duration of the child’s education.

     

    Will I receive a tax receipt?
    In countries where applicable, donations are tax deductible as allowable by law. Tax receipts are sent at the end of each year.

     

    How can I pay for my sponsorship?
    You can sign up for automatic monthly payments through your Credit Card or bank account, or send checks monthly, quarterly, semi–annually or yearly. Contact our office or send your payment direct to our bank account.

     

    Will I receive monthly reminders for payment?
    No. While your donations and commitment are appreciated, our offices cannot process monthly reminders in addition to coordinating sponsorship efforts at this time.

     

    How much of my donation goes to the child I am sponsoring?
    Country Lights Uganda is compliant with non–profit standards, sending approximately 80% of child sponsorship donations directly to field operations for program services.

    The remaining 20% contributes to program costs such as: producing information packs, courier costs, printing child update photos and coordinating sponsorship letters.

    Your financial support will help your child achieve a better life in their future; it pays for their school fees, supplies, uniforms and most importantly a daily meal.

    Your child will be uplifted by your encouragement, love and prayers.

     

    Will I be able to correspond with my child?
    You can expect a letter from your child about two to four times a year. A teacher or assistant will help a younger child who has not yet learned to write, or could receive a lovely drawing in lieu of a written letter.

    In some of the countries the letters are translated, but most of the children learn English at school.

    We encourage you to write to your sponsored child. More information about how to write to your child will be sent to you once you become a sponsor.

    Your letters are treasured by the children. It is very special to them that someone they have never met loves them enough to provide a future for them. The children love to hear about your family and friends, your daily activities, the foods you eat, the types of animals in your area, and the seasons in your part of the world. All letters are directed through our office. We do our best to ensure the privacy and safety of both our children and sponsors.

     

    Can I continue corresponding with my child after I no longer sponsor them?
    No. At this time Country Lights Uganda only accommodates letters between sponsored children and their current sponsors.

     

    Can I send gifts to my child?
    No. Due to the high costs of shipping, complex customs and border regulations in many African countries, and fairness to all our children,Country Lights Uganda does not allow gifts.

    However, at Christmas you will be given the opportunity to donate towards a special gift for your child that will be purchased in their country; this has the added benefit of being an investment into their country’s economy. This is always a practical gift that will also benefit the whole family. Examples include: towels and toiletries, school supplies, a mattress, etc.

     

    What if I am not able to make a payment?
    While it is important to understand that your commitment allows Country Lights Uganda to fulfill its commitment to the children, if you are experiencing financial challenges please contact our office.

     

    How does my child benefit by my support?

    Please refrain from sending your sponsored child money or birthday gifts.

     

    Can I visit my sponsored child?
    Absolutely! This is always a life–changing event for both children and their sponsors. If you are planning a trip to the area your child lives in, simply contact our office and we will make necessary arrangements for you to meet your child. For further information email us on support@countrylights.org
