Share in the sponsorship of a child for only $55 per month.

 

SERV’s House of Hope child sponsorship program allows you to build a personal relationship with a child, or children of your choice. Not only will you be able to write letters and send your child gifts, but he or she will also know your name, pray for you and write to you throughout the year.

House of Hope Kenya offers a loving, Christian environment where children receive nutritious food, clean water, clothing, shelter, education, vocational training, medical care and spiritual development.  We are investing in these children to one day leave the House of Hope, become leaders in their villages and impact future generations.

 

A full sponsorship covers all of the child's expenses at the House of Hope. You can sponsor a child for as little as $55 per month.  Or you can cover 2/3 for $110, or fully sponsor them for $165.  We have three levels of sponsorship to afford more people the opportunity to invest in a child's life.
