Through the ‘While We Wait’ fund, the child and their family can begin participating in the program from the moment they’re enrolled.
One of the best parts of our site staff’s jobs is the moment they get to tell a new family that their child is going to be enrolled for sponsorship. The parents and guardians are grateful for the financial assistance for their child’s care. The children are excited to have a new ‘godparent,’ a friend who will be helping them go to school.
The staff gather the necessary information and send it to Canada so that their child can get connected with a sponsor. This process can take weeks or months – a long time to wait for this lifechanging support to begin.
That’s where the ‘While We Wait’ fund comes in. Through this fund, the child and their family can begin participating in the program from the moment they’re enrolled. Their guardian begins meeting with their Chalice family circle, receiving regular funds, and taking the first steps to a much brighter, healthier future. The child gets the same support as their sponsored friends, until their own Chalice sponsor comes aboard.
Children who are enrolled for sponsorship need critical support – now. Until then, there’s Urgent Intermediate Support.
We can’t wait for you to join us!
