Welcome to the Fostering Hope – Child Sponsorship Program. Fostering Hope provides opportunities for giving back to children in need through individual and program sponsorship. Sponsored children will receive monetary donations from individuals and families to support their orphanage or foster home care, nutrition, schooling, therapies and medical care based on their individual needs. Sponsors receive photos and updates on the child that they are sponsoring, and get to see firsthand the difference they are making.
Below are children available for sponsorship. You can choose to sponsor a child or sibling group on a recurring monthly basis – or make a one-time donation to the child. Click the button next to each child to be directed to the Donation page where you can make a tax deductible donation in honor of that child.

Edna is beautiful two year old girl full of joy! She was abandoned at a market by her birth mother when she was just 2 months old. Her mother said to the fruit seller to take Edna for a minute claiming she had an emergency just around the corner. The birth mother never returned again. The fruit-seller waited a long time and Edna began to cry. After she was declared abandoned Edna was taken to the local orphanage.
Edna likes to play different games with other children in the orphanage, singing and dancing Burundian songs. Her caretakers tell us “She is very aware of injustice and defends herself if her right seems to be taken by other children.” She is very sensitive to love and craves affection and hugs.
