With our child sponsorships, BFGO chooses to operate a little differently than other organizations. We will guarantee you at least 1 (usually 2) updates per year including a photo. We will let you know how the child is doing in school and any other general information that we can. The child is allowed to write you letters if they choose, but due to the sensitive nature of their lives, they are not forced to write. Some of our children have experienced severe trauma linked to their orphan state (whether abandoned, surrendered, abused, or the sudden loss of parents, etc.) Likewise - we invite you to write to your kiddo at least 1 or 2 times per year, but it is not required. Your child will know your name and would appreciate a photo of your family. They are all very grateful and hopeful but not all of them are relational. Our sponsorship manager, Elaine, will keep you posted as to our travel dates and give you ample notice to prepare letter if you choose. Your monthly sponsorship funds help provide the funding for school fees and food. Please feel free to direct any questions to Elaine@BeautifulFeetGo.org .
We cannot accept gifts for the children. With nearly 90 children in our orphanages, we have to keep things fair for each child. For this reason, at Christmas, we do request additional funds to help purchase a gift for each child. Thank you for your understanding.
