You Can Sponsor a Child for a Year…

Since there is no reliable public school in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the only decent education is at private schools. Many parents in our sister fellowship are unable to send their children to school, or else forego other basic needs in order to pay for tuition and supplies.

Our Child Sponsorship program was established to address this urgent need. By gaining a basic education, children acquire the tools to learn the scriptures, develop their potential in the body of Christ, and build a foundation for providing for their future families.

$500 covers a child’s education for a full school year. This includes the tuition expense, as well as providing the child with a uniform and a few school supplies. You can give a single gift of $500 or give in regular installments throughout the year.

Annual deadline for child sponsorship: August 5

Please give at least $180 by August 5 so we can pay for a child’s first trimester of school.

New sponsors: Please contact us at (518) 785-8888 or info@lhim.orgWe need to know by email or a phone call if you are sponsoring a child.

Giving by check: Please write “Congo Child Sponsorship” on the memo line.

Giving online: Select “Congo Children's Fund” on the dropdown menu on the righthand box at the top of the Giving webpage.
