Sponsor a child

What’s a Sponsor?

Sponsorship provides sustainable income to enable us offer support, education and security to the children in our care. The Ishara Nepal relies almost entirely on the generosity of its friends from around the world. We spend over €80 per month on each child’s housing, education, food, healthcare, clothing and extra tuition. However, many remain unsponsored and, as a result, the pressure to meet our monthly bills is always a challenge. In becoming a sponsor, you are in effect helping all of our projects.

What can I expect as a sponsor?

Our sponsors make a real difference in the lives of the children you choose to support. To avoid jealousy or ill-feelings amongst them, you are described as their friends or big sisters/brothers from abroad. You receive information packs about your sponsor child periodically with general updates from Ishara Nepal, the monitoring report of your child, school reports where possible and photos. These updates enable sponsors to get a good insight into the life of the child they support, to see how Umbrella’s work affects that child and to learn just how important your help is. For further information, please download our Sponsorship Brochure.

How do I become a sponsor?

It’s very easy – all you need to do is complete the online Sponsorship Application form. While it costs Ishara Nepal over €80 per month to care for a child, we only ask you to send a minimum €30 per month by standing order or direct debit. This will enable us to plan our budgets and sustain the care of each child.
