Frequently Asked Questions
A. How Does The Sponsorship Program Work?
time someone becomes a sponsor, two lives are forever
changed. The lives of sponsored children are changed as a
result of your financial gifts. With your support and the
assistance of other caring sponsors, we try to develop the ability
to sustainably maintain ourselves. Your sponsorship will help make
programs possible that will address your sponsored child’s
(and other children’s) most basic needs—programs that
provide basic medical care, school fees and other supplies.
The children also benefit in ways you cannot
love you provide through a simple letter or gift may be the
encouragement a struggling boy or girl needs to make it through
another challenge. You will see first hand how you have given
your child the chance for a brighter, hopeful future.
The second life that is changed is yours. How can
photographs, letters, or drawings not touch you from your sponsored
child? Thanks to your prayers and commitment, you’ll
have the opportunity to watch your child change as he or she grows
B. How much are the costs?
We don’t have
specific sponsorship costs as costs may varry depending on a number
of factors including schools and classes they do attend. However,
we encourage you to be faithful in your financial support and
appreciate a minimum one-year commitment to the sponsorship program
Remember that the sponsorship costs do not include food as it is
provided for by the center. It only includes medical expenses,
school fees and other basic requirements like clothes and others
but on average sponsorship costs 1050 Dollars all-inclusive per
C. How will my child sponsorship contribution
One of the most effective ways of helping children
is to combine your sponsorship gifts with those of others.
Your child will not benefit exclusively as benefits will be
shared. This system ensures that children who may not have a
sponsor of their own will still benefit from our programs. This is
done to ensure equity to avoid feelings of betrayal and
unsupportiveness to those who may not have sponsorship.
D. May I choose the child I want to sponsor?
Yes! When enrolling, you may choose a child to sponsor.
Currently KOC has a list of 45 girls who need your sponsorship. If
you do not have a preference, a child where sponsor support is
needed the most will be selected for you. Some of them are enlisted
on our website-freetocharities.org.uk/kocuganda/sponsorship
E. Can I give a sponsorship gift?
You are able to share the gift of child sponsorship with a loved
one by selecting a child and entering the gift recipient’s
information at the end of the sponsorship form. The recipient
will then receive a welcome package introducing them to their

G. How long will my sponsorship last?
that you will want to be part of KOC’s work for a
considerable length of time. Committed support from sponsors
will allow us to achieve lasting results. However long you
will be with us, your sponsorship is very important to us.
There is no set age limit for children in our sponsorship
program. A child may be in her late teens but still needs to
continue attending school or learn a Skill. As long as a
sponsored child is in a project associated with KOC, she will
continue to receive assistance.
We will notify you when your sponsored child becomes
self-sufficient or if she leaves the orphanage. At that time
we’ll introduce you to another child who needs your help.
H. Can I visit my sponsored child?
sponsored child can be a most valued experience that strengthens
your relationship and understanding of KOC’s work. In
keeping with our commitment to child safety, all visits to the
centre must be coordinated through KOC’s Secretariat well in
advance. Prior to visiting your sponsored child, a notice will be
required. KOC does not pay for travel expenses. We hope
you understand that these steps are necessary to ensure the safety
of the children.
I. Can I correspond with my sponsored child?
encourage you to build a relationship with your sponsored
child. You may send letters or cards to your child as often
as you wish. We encourage you to write at least once a
month. A hand written letter is more personal; however, we
will accept e-mailed letters, which will then be printed and given
to the respective owner. The more you write the child you sponsor,
the more she will reap the benefits of your relationship.
J. What should I write about?
KOC suggests you
share a bit about your life, family, where you live, your culture,
and what you do. Please personalize your letter. That
makes it meaningful. Also ask your child about his or her
We ask you to be sincere and realistic in language and
which you write consistent with the values and Norms not forgetting
that these are children and more especially Girls.
K. What should I avoid writing about?
from writing about your material possessions, or anything else
which may stress the difference between you and your sponsored
child. Another topic to avoid is Pornography and politics.
Also, do not include any personal contact information such as phone
numbers, e-mail or mailing addresses. This is to protect your
privacy as well as to avoid direct appeals for financial aid from
L. Can I send packages to my sponsored child?
We understand you may want to send packages to your sponsored
child; however, KOC only accepts registered packages that may
include clothes or other things that may be shared. Slow delivery,
the possibilities of loss, theft or damage are some of the risks
associated with sending unregistered packages.
Place your letter in an unsealed regular sized envelope
full name of the child along with the child’s ID
number. Do not include your return address; just include your
name and sponsor ID number on the envelope. We ask that it is
unsealed because we monitor letters for content. Mail this
envelope in a larger one to the KOC Secretariat noted above.
