- That these children (and families) can receive an education that they might not otherwise be able to receive. *
- Sponsored children will be asked to help in a local church. Families of the child should attend church regularly. At the moment, all candidates are members of our local church, WIN Dumaguete or satellite churches. Ultimately, we would pray for the family to become God-fearing and thankful to Him.
- We also hope that, through this program, the child (and his/her family) would be able to build a relationship with the sponsor. Letters, email, or Facebook messages may be exchanged.* Public education tuition is free in the Philippines; however parents would have to pay miscellaneous fees (though minimal), lunch and snacks, and transportation. Uniforms are not required, but ‘suggested’ and a child not wearing one might feel out of place.
