Child Sponsorship

Equipping children to live productive lives

Each day, 15,000 children under 5 die from malnutrition and preventable diseases. Those who do survive often can’t escape the cycle of poverty rampant in their communities. To address the deepest needs, AMG International’s field partners operate orphanages and youth development centers in 10 countries. Our ministry also is designed to demonstrate the love of Christ to people in need, while gently guiding them into relationship with the Savior. Children have proven to be more fertile ground for coming to a saving knowledge of Christ. In fact, 80 percent of people who become Christians do so by the age of 14.

AMG International meets the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the children in our programs in partnership with local leaders, churches and like-minded organizations. We employ committed believers and provide ongoing biblical instruction. Kids in our programs exceed the national academic standards in their countries. For example, 100 percent of the kids in our Haiti program graduate from high school and pass the national exam, which opens doors for good jobs and future educational opportunities. Likewise, the majority of the children we serve across our centers rank in the top 10 percent of their classes.

Through our child sponsorship program, we are committed to building a “Bridge to Life” to safely carry children over the rivers of brokenness that have trapped their families for generations. Our holistic approach puts the Gospel front and center, as AMG International national leaders share the love of Christ through word and deed. In short, we equip children to live productive lives, provide hope for a better tomorrow, train up future leaders of the faith and strengthen the local church. In the process, we also provide much-needed support for their families.

Our child sponsorship program addresses the following areas:

Physical careThis includes providing a safe environment for children to learn and be mentored. Basic nutrition and medical needs are addressed, as well as room and board for children who have no home or have no school in their village.

Intellectual careChildren have opportunities to learn arts, crafts and musical instruments through AMG International’s child development centers. They also receive tutoring, vocational training and scholarships.

Spiritual care This is the cornerstone of our child sponsorship program. AMG International leaders direct children in discipleship, Bible studies, Christian summer camps, and other activities that nurture children’s spiritual growth.

Emotional careA healthy family life is vital to a child’s emotional well-being. We share the Gospel with families and teach them about children’s needs for safety, education and protection from mental and physical abuse.

FEATURE STORY

Child Sponsorship // June 2018 Newsletter

When Kavya Bhogaparapu was 10 years old, her mother died of heart problems. Shortly after, her father abandoned her, leaving Kavya with her grandparents. Kavya’s aunt enrolled her in an AMG International school in India, and that connection led to her being sponsored by a generous individual. From there, the doors opened for a future with many bright options.

Thanks to her sponsor, Kavya completed junior high and high school and then attended a government-run junior college. Her sponsor continued to financially and prayerfully support her through a nursing program at a regional training center. Through sponsorship, Kavya received a quality education, books, food, clothing and general support. More importantly, she gained hope and developed a dream to become a nurse.

“AMG International has changed my life … I would likely have stopped going to school to work as a maid to help support my grandparents,” says Kavya, who is now a nurse-midwife at a local AMG International hospital. “I was in a position where no one helped me, but AMG gave me and my family hope.”
