Why should I sponsor a child?
Some of these children are left at the orphanages, but most of them are rescued from the streets. Many orphan children belong to street gangs or professional begging rings. The pimps or bosses are very cruel to these children, often plucking out their eyes or crippling them so that they can make more money out of them. Other kids are trained how to steal and this then becomes their life, making money for their cruel owners until they are caught or killed. Life expectancy is very low with malnutrition, disease, street fights or being killed by the bosses.
Sharing Hands endeavours to get in early and rescue kids daily, releasing them from fear and hopelessness. You can a rescuer too! You don’t have to even go out on the streets. But for €15/month you can save a child’s life, let them know that someone loves and cares for them.
Could I ever visit the child that I sponsor?
Every year at Christmas your sponsored child will send you a letter (which will be translated) and a picture that they drew for you. I will also get updates on their health, education and general well-being for any sponsors who request one. If a sponsor is serious about visiting their child, then they can travel with me on one of my trips. But you will also need to be prepared to travel with me throughout India to visit the other orphanages and other projects.
How can I become a sponsor?
Please read the information on the website to try and get as much information as possible. If you’re still interested in becoming a sponsor, please email me on the email provided, or ring me anytime. Both the email and phone number are provided on the page.
How much is it to sponsor a child?
The cost of sponsoring a child is €15/month. This is normally paid by direct debit, but you can lodge it yourself when it suits, if you wish. Many of our sponsors just make one lodgement a year of €180. If you can’t do a regular payment, we will gratefully receive any donation, no matter how small it all makes a difference.
How can I get involved?
Again just email me or ring me, I would love to talk to you. If you would like to run a fundraising event, send me the details and I will help you anyway I can, then post it on the website, Facebook and twitter.
If I fundraise, can I select which project the money goes to?
Yes you can, you can decide if you want it to go towards a building project, orphanage, clean water, food program, education, medical clinics etc. If you contact me I’ll give you a list of what projects are running or in the planning or priority. You decide!
