Sponsorships

Thanks a lot in advance for thinking about sponsoring our foundation. We very much appreciate every help you can provide.

There are two possible ways of becoming a sponsor:

1. General Sponsorship of Foster Foundation Nepal

If you want to help funding the Foster Foundation, you can become a sponsor. This means you would agree on transferring a certain amount of money each month (or year or every 3 or 6 months; whatever suits you best) to our bank account. There is no minimum amount of what you have to give to become a sponsor. However, depending on your bank it might not make sense to give very small amounts as the costs for the transaction to Nepal might be higher. Apart from that we are happy about any amount of money you might chose to regularly support us with.

Please understand that we will rely on your money if you agree on sponsoring us. Therefore, if you want to become a sponsor, please commit to an amount of money that you can afford in the long-term as our foundation is very vulnerable to a sudden absence of funding. If it is not possible for you to commit to something like this but you still want to give something, one-time donations are of course also very welcome.

Your money will make a big difference through our organization here in Nepal.

To give you an idea about costs for running a foster home these are the estimated expenses of Foster Foundation Nepal monthly and yearly for 2010/2011

2. Sponsoring one child

Apart from being a general sponsor of the Foster Foundation, it is also possible to sponsor one specific child.

Sponsoring a child can be very rewarding. From your first payment until they finish education, you will be ensuring that they have the best chances in life.

The child you sponsor will keep in touch through letters whilst the Foundation will provide you with school reports so that you can see your support is directly helping a young life.

Costs

  • Age 0 to 1042.000 NPR or 420 € per year and child
  • Age 10 to 14: The above plus an additional 10 % as school fees, books and clothes become more expensive
  • From age 14: Another 10% on top of the former amount

This includes the costs for living, food, school fees, stationary, clothes and medical care as well as a sponsorship kit. The kit includes the child´s profile, school and progress reports, photos, drawings and other information regarding the sponsored child.

Visit your sponsored child

Sponsors are always encouraged to build a relationship with their child. Meeting your sponsored child can be a valuable experience that builds a good relationship with the children. You are most welcome to visit your sponsored child and observe the improvements made possible by your valued contribution.

Choosing a child to sponsor

The following children are still looking for sponsors:

Asha

Rijan

Shushila

Maya

Current constraints

Please understand that we do not want to favour any of the foster children over the others. This means that as long as we do not have a sponsor for each of the children, we cannot use your child sponsorship money for one child exclusively. Although you will officially be the sponsor for your chosen child and get photos and emails from this child, your money will still be used for the rest of the children as well in order to ensure that all of our foster children have the opportunity to live and study in a healthy environment.

 

Thanks a lot for your support!!
