Why Sponsor a child?

I recently signed on to sponsor a child through GMM.  A friend suggested I write a bit about why.

I live in Kirkland, WA which is s suburb of Seattle located pretty close to the Microsoft campus and a few miles away from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.   Living this close to Microsoft has definitely impacted the way I live.  This is a relative affluent area in an affluent country.

Living this close to the Gates Foundation has (hopefully) impacted the way I think.

The Gates Foundation is dedicated to the belief that All Lives Have Equal Value.  Today, not all individuals have equal opportunities to thrive.  I believe that if people in rich areas of the world believe that we can change circumstances for people in less fortunate areas of the world, we will.

GMM has shown me that I can definitely make a difference for my sponsored child, and has also made it very easy for me to do.  A couple clicks on the sponsorship site, and donation amounts about equivalent to what my family pays for cable TV, and my sponsored child will have safe drinking water, clothes, food, schooling fees and required equipment and healthcare.

Leaving me asking, “Why not sponsor a child?”  I can’t think of any reason.

I am grateful to GMM for helping connect me to the opportunity to help a child in need of help.  This child is of equal value to every other child in the world, and deserves the opportunity to grow up healthy and well-educated.  I think it’s a privilege to be part of making that happen.

Sponsor a child for only £10 a month!

Sponsoring a child ranges from £10 to £27. However this depends on the child you choose to sponsor, the child’s education level, age and the level of sponsorship you wish to commit to. You can refer to each child’s profile page in order to view the details of the child.

A full sponsorship usually ranges from £25 to £27. The full sponsorship includes safe drinking water, clothes, food, schooling fees and required equipment and healthcare for the child.

Some of the children have already attained funds for schooling and therefore the required sponsorship for such children is less than the full Sponsorship. These details can be found on the children’s profile pages. In such a case where a child does not require full sponsorship, you could choose to sponsor between £10 or £15. Please visit here for more information.

Support A Child’s Education

Leo Rosten once said “the purpose of life is not to be happy but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make a difference that you lived at all” while Alan Loy McGinnis, a Christian psychotherapist said “there is no more noble occupation in the world than to assist another human being – to help someone succeed.” Both sayings come to emphasise the importance of a life of service to others, especially to the less privileged.

A long-lasting impact one can express this life of service is by envisioning a brighter future of a nation through investing in a child’s education, especially orphans and vulnerable children either through personally educating them or assisting in their education.

Education is very important to the development of a nation and particularly to the emancipation of a human being. In an ideal world, it would be better for every citizen to be educated so that s/he is in possession of the “most powerful weapon which s/he can use to change the world” as Nelson Mandela sees it. However in the real world, some people lack resources that would permit them access education though they would very much want to get it. These are the orphans and other vulnerable children. These children have either lost both parents, or have lost a father but the mother is not able to support the child, or they have both parents but the parents are incapable of taking care of the children either because the parents are very old, mentally challenged, or the children were rejected by the parents. Though the children are in this situation, they are not less human than the others, in fact they need to love and be loved just like others, they yearn for a shoulder to lean on, and they want someone to make them laugh.

It is a noble cause to support these children go through education and see a light at the end of the tunnel. They may seem small and unimportant now but if we believe and support them today, they will grow to be life changers and influence the world for the better. Just like a baobab seed, it is very small and may seem worthless. However, if the seed is grown and it is subjected to a conducive environment, it grows to be a gigantic and confident tree than many other trees.

Goodness and Mercy Missions, Orphan Sponsorship Program through your kind support would like to change a child’s life for the better through making educational facilities easily accessible to these children. There are so many of these children, innocent as they are, stretching their hands towards your generous heart with all hope that you will put a smile on their lips and brighten their faces.

Hope differed makes the heart sick but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Who knows we might be a solution to the longings of these orphans and vulnerable children. There’s nothing like too little or too much in giving as once said by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow- “No man is so poor as to have nothing worth giving. Give what you have. To someone it may be better than you dare to think.”
