EDUCATION THROUGH CHILD SPONSORSHIP

EDUCATION EMPOWERS

Education equalizes opportunity.
Education opens doors.
Education empowers children to rise up and gives them reason to dream.

At Dignity Freedom Network, we know that education is an equalizer. That’s why education is our main focus. When you sponsor a child with DFN, you give the gift of education through one of our Good Shepherd partner schools where children as young as three years old receive an English-medium, values-based education.

WHY EDUCATION

When a child is born into poverty, disadvantaged and forgotten by the world, what can they do to rise above their circumstance? What resources are available to the poor and marginalized? If we don’t find the forgotten and declare their worth, who will?

When you provide education for a child, you disrupt a system meant to keep them in poverty and isolation. Your investment in the life of a child breaks ancient chains of oppression and brings freedom, dignity and worth to an entire community. You do more than just send them to school. You become an equalizer, leveling the ground that has been unjust for centuries. You give them opportunity and hope for the future. Your gift of child sponsorship helps them live their best life, one of dignity, freedom, hope, and joy.

Your sponsorship cracks the door wide open for a child who just might change the world.

EDUCATION FAQ

Does education really reduce a child’s risk of being trafficked?2019-06-20T19:44:26+00:00

Absolutely 100% yes! India has the highest population of children in the world, as well as the largest number of children in poverty. Extreme poverty puts them at risk for both child labor and human trafficking. Education not only provides a safe place to grow up, but also the tools to rise above economic poverty. You are providing a quality education as well as a safe and loving environment that changes the trajectory of a child’s life forever.

What are the children in Good Shepherd Schools being taught?2019-06-20T19:45:24+00:00

Children study a preparatory, government-approved curriculum, with English as the primary language of instruction. Without the ability to speak and write English, underprivileged children have little chance to excel in Indian society. Students also receive a values-based education promoting the principles of freedom, equality, and human dignity for all. Our GSSs provide education to children regardless of their class, creed, or faith.

How is DFN different from other sponsorship organizations?2019-05-21T19:58:47+00:00

Most sponsorship organizations do not run their own schools. They simply support partner schools with their dollars. Our partner in India operates their own network of schools which ensures the high quality and holistic development needed to transform communities. Your sponsorship includes not only education, but also medical and community support.

What does my child sponsorship include?2019-05-21T19:45:07+00:00

Your sponsorship subsidizes tuition, uniforms, school supplies, nutrition supplements (where necessary), textbooks, teacher salaries, and administrative costs. You are enabling children to receive a top-quality, English-medium, values-based education, and launch India’s most at-risk children toward dignity, equality, safety, and security. Additionally, your sponsorship donation provides valuable health and economic resources to students’ families and the community.

What is my commitment?2019-05-21T19:45:57+00:00

Since the main goal of sponsorship is to free children by providing a complete education, our hope is that you will commit to sponsoring your child until he/she graduates. To make a change in your monthly sponsorship, email us.

How are child sponsorship funds distributed?2019-05-21T19:59:59+00:00

Your child does not receive cash but rather the assurance that they have full access to community development programming in their area. Our proven model allows a one-to-one relationship between a sponsor and a student, while pooling the gifts of all sponsors who support children in the same school. Additionally, to give their education value, most students pay a subsidized school fee each year. Your continued gift of child sponsorship ensures long-term sustainability of your child’s education.

Can I host a child sponsorship event?2019-05-21T20:00:53+00:00

Absolutely! Nothing will increase our work in India more than you getting your friends involved. You can host an event at your church, in your home, in your workplace, or even at your community fair. Your event can be 10 people or 100 people. We’ll give all the materials, promo pieces, and resources you’ll need to host a successful event. Email us for more information.
