When you sponsor a child with Empowerment International, it's personal. Your sponsored child is not just a number we have a relationship with them and you will too.
Three times a year you hear from your child. You are always welcome to write to them too, they really enjoy it when you do! As a matter of fact, you are welcome to meet them if you are in Nicaragua. When you sponsor a child you are ascertaining that they have a spot in our program. Each year they receive school supplies, uniforms, shoes, tuition (for older kids if applicable), emotional and physical healthcare as needed, tutoring after school, home visits, access to all of our clubs such as reading, computers, dance, photography, soccer, art, and biking, and they become a part of the EI family. As long as the student maintains our program requirements, they will be a part of our program throughout their educational career. It's no longer unusual for students to start at a young age in our program and graduate from High School or even enter the university.
