Sponsorship FAQs

Why sponsor a child?

Sponsoring a child creates real, lasting opportunities for a child and their family.

How do I sponsor a child?

Simply visit our Sponsor a Child page. You can either "Generally Sponsor" a child which means that Jacaranda Kids will determine which child needs your sponsorship immediately OR you can choose one of the beautiful children from our URGENT list on the same page. Just follow the instructions on the page to begin your sponsorship today! If you have any questions or are experiencing technical issues please contact us at kids@jacarandacommunity.com. We will try our best to respond as soon as possible.

How long will my sponsorship last?

Ideally, a sponsor partners with a child through their entire academic career. We ask that you commit to at least one year of sponsorship and prayerfully consider sponsorship renewal at the end of each year. 

Can I correspond with my child?

We hope to periodically send you letters and/or drawings from your child. If you would like to send a letter to your child please sign with your first name only please. Always include your child's ID number on any correspondence. Since postal mail is very unreliable we deliver letters in batches as mission teams head over to Nairobi. Please note, that all letters to and from children in the Jacaranda Kids program are read by our staff to ensure the safety and security of all involved. Also, please understand that we cannot accept physical gifts to your child. 

How many sponsors can a child have?

We serve children in over 60 schools throughout Nairobi and surrounding areas. School fees can vary greatly. In addition, some children are enrolled in boarding schools when conditions at home are not suitable. Multiple sponsor relationships are paired with children whose costs cannot be covered by a single sponsorship. If you wish to know whether your child needs or has another sponsor, please send us an email at kids@jacarandacommunity.com

How can I pay for my sponsorship?

We currently accept donations in the form of PayPal or check. Please do not send cash via postal mail. If you do not want to use Paypal and would prefer to send a check all sponsor and general fund donations can be sent to either:
Jacaranda Kids
P.O. Box 345

Jacaranda Kids
5170A Timberlea Blvd.
Mississauga, ON L4W 2S5

Also, please understand that we cannot accept physical gifts to give your sponsored child. 

Is my sponsorship tax deductible?

Yes. Jacaranda Kids is a branch of Jacaranda Community which is a ministry of Kean and Company, a registered 501 (c)(3).

Who should I contact if I have other questions?
