How much will it cost to sponsor a child?
A $38.00/month or $456.00/year donation will support a poor child in elementary or high school, while a donation of $76/month or $912/year will send a poor youth to college or vocational school.
What does my donation cover?
Your donation will provide for your scholar’s school tuition, uniform and shoes, books, and school supplies. It will also provide for the child’s annual medical/dental check-up, as well as for field trips and other school-related activities on values formation.
Can I choose the child to sponsor?
Yes, once we have made available online the photo and profile of children for sponsorship. Meantime, ANCOP Canada will recommend a child for you to sponsor.
Can I communicate to my sponsored child?We will encourage a regular exchange of letters between you and your scholar. As we do not give out donor’s contact information, the ANCOP office will facilitate this exchange. You can mail to us your letter and this will be forwarded to our ANCOP site coordinator who will hand it to your scholar. Likewise, you will be getting from us any letter coming from the child. We also recommend sending cards during birthdays and holidays. Communicating regularly is a good way of developing a relationship between you and your scholar. You can write about your culture, provide a photo of your family, and express some encouraging words that will further motivate the child to do well in school, to value education, and to reach for his or her dreams. Not sure how to write to your child? Read about our writing tips.
Can I visit my sponsored child?You will need to inform us at least 1 month before your planned visit so that we can inform our ANCOP site coordinator to arrange and confirm the meeting. In your visit, you will be able to talk to your scholar, exchange stories, share a meal, and meet his or her family. For your scholar, it would mean a lot. Meeting you would put flesh on your act of generosity and caring.
As a sponsor, do I get updates from ANCOP Canada on my sponsorship?Aside from your scholar’s letters, you will receive from ANCOP Canada an Annual Progress Report (APR) with the child’s latest photo as well as updates on his or her school activities and other involvement.
Can my sponsored child be changed?ANCOP envisions graduating the scholars all the way to college. However, a child sponsorship may be discontinued for the following reasons:
On a positive note, a scholar may voluntarily leave the program because his or her family’s financial status has improved.
In all cases and if termination is unavoidable, we will send you a letter about the termination of your scholar from the program. Likewise, we will provide you with the profile and photo of your new scholar.
Can I discontinue my sponsorship?
If due to the unavoidable reason you will decide to discontinue your sponsorship, you will need to inform us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one month before the date of effectivity. This is important so that we will be able to find another sponsor to assume sponsorship of the scholar and avoid disrupting his or her studies.
