Children in our ChildCARE Plus programs between the ages of 0 and 16 are carefully selected from communities suffering the effects of chronic poverty. Often the families where we work can’t afford nutritious food or enough food, medical care, school fees or a required uniform to have their child attend school.
Without an education, these children are prone to a life of limited opportunities and a higher probablity of continuing the cycle of poverty for their own children. Child sponsorship opens children’s minds and unlocks their potential. Through a monthly $37 donation, a child can attend school, have access to nutritious food and healthcare and be spiritually nurtured by our on-the-ground ChildCARE Plus community representatives. Some of our children are orphaned, suffering the effects of HIV/Aids and other chronic illnesses. While most ChildCARE Plus children are living with their family, there are some special cases of orphaned children. Some children also live at Villages of Hope communities under the care of house mothers and dedicated Christian staff.Sponsors of all religious faiths and denominations are welcome to sponsor children through ERDO. ChildCARE Plus children include boys and girls, Christians and non-Christians, and all races and ethnicities.With one of the best ratios of child sponsorship agencies in Canada, ERDO guarantees that 84% of all child sponsorship funds are directly for the care of the individual child. The remaining small portion is used for the administration of the program in Canada and within the local country, processing gifts, and communications that encourage other Canadians to become sponsors.Become a Sponsor today and discover how through just $37 a month you can change a child's life.
