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."

"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."

Habari (hello), my name is Joseph

  • location


  • 5 yrs. old


Entered the program: September 2022

Joseph lives with his grandmother and 5 cousins in his grandmother’s three-room timber house with a dirt floor. They have electricity for light and use firewood for cooking in an outdoor kitchen. They use a pit latrine and fetch water from a nearby borehole which they boil to drink.                                                         
Joseph’s mother was abused by Joseph’s father and ran away with his younger sibling, abandoning Joseph to his grandmother to raise him. Joseph’s grandmother is a small-scale farmer and relies on food she grows to provide for herself and her 6 grandchildren.
