Sponsorship costs just $1.33 per day. $40 per month. $480 per year. Remarkably, this sponsorship money will do more than just pay for a child’s food and education. It actually covers his or her entire share of our orphanage’s operating costs…things like clothing, electrical bills, hostel repairs, picnics, furniture and more. We are able to achieve this because so many of our expenditures are off-set by fees generated from our school, food grown on our farm, and furniture/maintenance provided by our workshop. Projects like these reduce costs, as the ‘middle man’ in most transactions is removed.
When we do have to buy things, like toothpaste, clothing or crockery, we do so in bulk and always try to deal with the supplier directly. Additionally, our main administration team works without any salary or compensation, receiving financial support from their own individual sponsors, friends and family members.
