Sponsor a Child and Begin:
2) Buying a 25 pound bag of rice or a container of powdered milk for a family who is getting by on less than $2.00 a day.
3) “Sponsoring” a family that you came to know on your Service Team experience.
4) Sending a check every month to be used for simple necessities like food, water, medical visits, water filters, etc…
By donating just $30.00 a month , you can change lives.
In Guatemala, these are called “Padrinos”, or Godparents. Be a Padrino or Padrina for someone who lives miles away, but who will quickly be in your heart. Contact us and we will gladly find you a family or a child to sponsor. You can also request a family. Each month we update you with a photo of your “familia” (family).
Becoming a Sponsor (Godparent):
Sponsoring a Guatemalan child demonstrates love. Impoverished children often do not grow up feeling a sense of personal worth. Through your act of love, your Godchild will experience the important sense of human worth through knowing they are loved and valued by you. When you sponsor a child you can be part of their life. You can be that special person who cared enough to change their life for the better! Your generosity will give this child and their family a better future full of hope.
A relationship with your Godchild can start today; once you complete the application form you will receive a biography, photographs and a special message from your Godchild. Cards, photos and facilitated email messages can be shared to help your relationship and bond grow. Your Godchild will want you to share in their happy moments, their sad moments, their dreams and their goals, just like family. You will be connected through seeing photos and hearing of your Godchild growing and being nurtured through your generous support. Every year you will receive a report from our Sponsorship Department; in it you will learn about your Godchild’s achievements and personal development. You will see that your money is being used to make a difference in their life. ImagininGuatemala is committed to keeping you informed about your Godchild.
We personally thank you for your interest in helping our Guatemala children, with that Guatemala will be a better country!
