Sponsorship Highlight 
Jonah is one of three children who lives with his parents in a village not far from God Cares Primary School. He is five years old and his parents need help supporting his educational needs in order to attend God Cares Primary School.
Your monthly sponsorship of $35 will allow Jonah to start attending school and then stay in school and receive education and discipleship.
Students Return to School
God Cares Students will be reporting back to school in the beginning on February 6th. If any Christmas gifts or birthday gifts were sent in by sponsors after the student left school, they will be receiving them upon return.  

FAQ Highlight
What amount should I gift my child for their birthday?
If you would like to give your sponsored child a birthday gift, $30 is the perfect amount. The social worker will help your child get what they need. This could be a new bible, shoes, a new shirt, etc.
