|What is the background of the children who need sponsoring?
Children in MKCH’s child sponsorship program are commonly referred to us by community, church and government leaders. Our outreach staff also goes to their origins to trace their background. Many of the children in the program are orphans or have very poor background or who have been abused or neglected by their families.
Why should I sponsor a child?
By sponsoring a child, you will enable provide MKCH basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing and education essential to make the child self-reliant.
Why sponsor a child with MKCH?
MKCH is a small Kenyan grassroots non-profit with minimal administration cost, so most of the contributions go directly to helping the child you are sponsoring.
Can I choose who I sponsor?
You can select if you would like to sponsor a boy or a girl. If you have no preference then MKCH will select a child on your behalf where we feel felt the need is greatest.
How much do I pay to sponsor a child?
We welcome any amount of contribution, with understanding that each sponsor can afford different amount. However, we can only support the child with the amount you send us.
How much of my contribution will reach my child?
Over 90 percent of your contribution will go towards ensuring your child has a safe place to stay, food on the table, clothing, school uniforms, books and basic health care and good education
What will I receive?
You will receive a photograph and description of the child shortly after you show interest to be a sponsor. You will then receive at least one update per year about the child’s progress as well as a letter or card from the child. In addition, you will receive MKCH’s newsletter twice a year which will update you on the whole of MKCH’s work.
Can I send gifts to my sponsored child?
No! We greatly discourage sponsors from sending gift packages because of the huge custom duties and taxes charged for every parcel from overseas. However, you can send money to purchase the gifts locally which would be cheaper and promoting local community
