What Does My Sponsorship Provide?

Your sponsorship helps provide for your child’s physical, educational and spiritual needs. These needs are met differently depending on the community your child is in, but include things like: nutritious meals, safe drinking water, health care, school tuition, tutoring, bible training and spiritual mentorship.

"When we heard about Forward Edge we didn’t hesitate to sponsor a child. I love that my children can see us serving the Lord with the money He has entrusted to us. I love the opportunity to correspond with our child and hope to one day further serve her and her community by serving on a missions trip to her village."

Sponsors Monserrat in Mexico & Fabian in Cuba

"It is my joy to start every day at my desk, looking at my little girl’s picture and praying for her. The letters we send one another are so important to me as I’ve watched our relationship grow. It thrills me to learn that reading her Bible and singing in church are her favorite activities. Sponsoring her is one of God’s many blessings in my life."

Nicholas Robinson
Sponsors Simon in Uganda

"I really respect Forward Edge for seeking to meet the emotional, relational, and spiritual needs of those in poverty, not just their physical needs. I prayerfully decided that sponsoring a child with Forward Edge was a simple way to give back with more than just finances. I anticipate how the Lord can challenge and grow my personal faith through this relationship."

Entered the program: May 2018

Lucia lives with her parents and 3 brothers in a small sheet metal house with no water; they fetch water from a bore hole. The home does not have a toilet so the family shares a community pit latrine with their neighbors. Her parents are casual laborers and often don't have work; they sometimes live on less than $1.00 a day.

Lucia's little cousin, Nelson, is also in the Mama Beth program.
