Caring for at-risk, orphaned and abandoned children drives the mission of NLAI, and child sponsorship drives our ability to provide for these precious ones in our care.
New Life Children’s Home in Villa Nueva, Guatemala, currently cares round-the-clock for 49 children which is funded by child sponsorships. Many other well-know sponsorship programs provide only one aspect of the child’s care, but here at NLCH, we provide every aspect of care which includes but is not limited to food, clean water, medical, psychological and dental care, a Christ-centered education, life-skills training, and a home environment with Jesus at the center. To do this at full capacity, each NLCH child needs 15 sponsors at $35/month.
After more than a year of living through a global pandemic, in which some of our sponsors lost employment and in which we were unable to host short-term mission teams (the primary source of new sponsors), we are significantly below our full-funding level. In response to this deficit in sponsors, a former NLAI board member and long-time supporter has initiated the Double Your Impact Sponsorship Challenge. Through the end of 2021, he will MATCH up to 50 NEW child sponsorships throughout 2022! Click the button below to begin a new sponsorship!
Our belief is that once you’ve experienced the joy of sponsoring one of our children, you’ll want to keep sponsoring him or her in order to impact that child’s life for years to come. We have seen the beauty of this type of long-term relationship throughout the history of NLCH. Click on the "Sponsor Testimony" button below above for two stories of long-term sponsorship and the impact it has made.
Once you sign up, you will receive more information about your child and an update each June. You’ll also receive a Christmas card from him or her. In addition, you are welcome to communicate via mail or email, or give toward your sponsored child’s birthday celebration.
We invite any of our supporting churches to consider holding a sponsorship drive to take advantage of this chance to double the impact of sponsorships. Contact Kristy Mehner at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
