Our Sponsorship Programs

Manos del Sur has several program in Latin America. Each one of them is different from the rest and with its own special needs. Some of them have bigger structures and others are run by volunteers. So in some of them we sponsor individual children, with all the administrative work that it implies and in others we sponsor the whole program. The final result is the same: all the children in the program receive our support in nutrition, education and health,

Sponsoring a child or a program changes many lives and futures forever. The family and community around your sponsored child or program also benefit from your generosity. Your donation goes a long way and is multiplied many times.

The beautiful bond you form with a child and the satisfaction that comes from improving their life can change your own life. You are given the chance to know the child's name, family, schooling, likes and dislikes. You will also receive a photo of your child and an annual letter and progress report. You can bond with your child even more by writing to them and arranging for a visit.

If you sponsor a program you will receive all the information regarding the program, a progress report, individual children's stories and you will create a bond will each one of the children. Of course, you can also visit the program and get to know them or even correspond with the program's director.

Writing to your sponsored child

Exchanging letters/emails with your sponsored child makes your relationship far more meaningful. Including pictures of yourself and your family allows your child to get to know you even better. Since many sponsored children cannot read English, a volunteer breaks through the barrier of communication and translates your letter for you. Your child receives both the original letter/email and the translation. Please address letters to your child to our office.

Additional paper products such as bookmarks, postcards and stickers may be inserted. Unfortunately, we are unable to forward bulkier materials such as toys, jewelry or clothing at this time.

Visiting


When planned accordingly, a visit to your sponsored child or program can be a life-changing experience for you both. Sponsors who have visited their children often rave about how much they enjoyed the experience.

Please contact our Miami office upon confirmation of your travel dates. We will help you arrange a visit and provide you with all necessary information to help make the most of your visit.
