Every year we will receive a detailed report on the child’s education, their progress and a handwritten letter from the child. If you wish to write to your sponsored child, we’ll make sure it is delivered to them. We can even organize visitation rights so you can meet the child face to face. This bond between you and the orphan is vital and the child will feel happy to connect with the donor that is making their life so much better.
HOW ORPHAN SPONSORSHIP WORKS
We use your donation of $ 55 a month to change the lives of children in some of the most deprived communities in the world. Your support means that we can ensure that they receive an education, food, healthcare, medical support and the care that any child needs. These are basics that millions of children are deprived of and where your contributions mean that they are looked after and given hope for the future.

Learn more about how orphan sponsorship works with our FAQs.
How much does sponsorship cost?
Our Orphan Sponsorship Programme costs just $ 55 USD per month per child or $ 660 USD a year, that’s just $ 1.80 a day.
Your sponsorship contribution will be used to provide the following:
• FOOD • SHELTER • CLOTHING• CLEAN WATER & SANITATION • MEDICAL CARE• EDUCATION • LOVING CARE IN FAMILY-oriented home or institution.
A small amount of your contribution is used by Orphans in Need to deliver the right kind of assistance to each child and to monitor the end use of your donation ensuring it is delivered correctly and to our standards. This is also saved as a contingency to support children whose sponsorship is ended by the donor and those who may need emergency support.
How do we select the children that we sponsor?
We select those children that are most in need of financial support. We do not base our decisions on gender and our decisions are based on current circumstances.
The most urgent cases take precedence. For example, age, current family support, poverty levels, current health levels of the child and current shelter arrangements are key factors that determine the level of urgency.
Orphans that take higher precedence are those that have little or no family support, are young, suffer from medical problems and have no shelter.
How long does the sponsorship last?
Orphan Sponsorship is a long term programme that will continue until each orphan becomes self-sufficient. As long as the orphan requires help and support we will continue to support them. Our aim is to help each orphan obtain a decent education so that they can then flourish, find good stable jobs and support themselves.
The circumstances of the orphan may change, for example, a family member may come forward and take full responsibility to look after the orphan and help feed, clothe, educate and provide shelter and most of all love. In such a situation, if we feel the orphan will be well looked after then we will phase out their sponsorship.
Orphans may also be adopted and in such a circumstance we will again evaluate and make sure all the necessary needs of the child can be fulfilled by the potential parents before we stop their sponsorship.
Will I be able to contact or visit my sponsored child?
We will provide you with an opportunity to communicate directly with your sponsored orphan by allowing you to send letters as well as organizing visitation rights so you can meet the child face to face. This bond between you and the orphan is vital and the child will feel happy to connect with the donor that is making their life so much better.
How is the Orphan Sponsorship Programme different from other organizations?
Many organizations provide child and orphan sponsorship schemes, but at Orphans in Need, orphan children are the focus • 7 days a week • 24 hours a day • 365 days a year.
We are a dedicated orphan charity with over 5 years of experience and positive results. Children need a parent’s full attention and we try to do this with every child under our care. Our committed teams in the Pakistan and in our eld countries work continuously to deliver and develop our orphan care.
Our sponsorship programme is specifically designed for the orphan children. We are not bound by any race, creed or color. We see it as a fundamental human right that every orphan deserves to be fed, have access to clean drinking water, clothing, good medical care, a decent education, and shelter. We have only one agenda, to help orphans in pakistan . Working with our partners in the field, we aim to get as many NGOs and other charities to follow our dream of giving orphans a brighter future.
Can I send gifts to my sponsored child?
We often receive requests from our donors wanting to send gifts to their sponsored child. This is something we do not generally accommodate because of the associated costs with delivering the item and also because we are mindful of all of the children that we look after.
Our sponsored orphans often reside in homes or villages where there are many other poor children and orphans. For us to only deliver a gift to only a select number of orphans would make the remaining ones feel deprived. For this reason, we encourage you to donate £20 towards a gift which will go into a fund for the orphan children in the region. We will then use this amount to ensure they all receive gifts at special times of life .
