Love One More
Through IGL, there are many ways to share the love of Christ with children, from funding “Children’s Gospel Clubs” to building children’s homes that house orphaned or needy children. A great place to begin is child sponsorship, as outlined below.
Sponsor a child
Why should I love a child?
As a child sponsor, you have the unique opportunity to change the life of a child forever. You will be personally connected with a child living in one of 19 IGL children’s homes. They will write to you and pray for you by name. Your child’s care includes:
- family-style living
- Christian house parents
- nutritious meals
- medical care
- an education
- and more!
What will I receive as a child sponsor?
- A complete child profile with a photo and information about your child and his or her family
- A relationship with your sponsored child developed through written letters and photos
- An annual Christmas card with an updated picture of your child
The relationship you build with your sponsored child will change you both. One sponsor from Ohio said,
“I don’t know what I’d do without my (sponsored) kids. They have become very dear to my heart over the years. It’s a pleasure to watch them grow up and know I played a part in their lives.”
How does sponsorship work?
Sponsorship involves a commitment of $35* per month, per child. You will receive your first “hello” letter from your child within eight to ten weeks after beginning your sponsorship. Each time you write to your child, they will respond with a letter.
Sponsors: Visit our Child Sponsorship Resource page for information on writing to your child, sending gifts, or arranging visits.
