How Sponsorship Works
When you sponsor a child through Hungry4HIM, you are providing them:
- two meals per day (while they are at school duing the day)
- a school uniform (This forms part of their cultural identity. In Kenya, children who attend school wear uniforms. Those who cannot afford to go to school do not. A child's school uniform is therefore an item of clothing that they take great pride in.)
- school supplies (All of the children we sponsor are provided notebooks, pencils and other necessities for study.)
- teachers (A small portion of your sponsorship donation pays for teacher salaries. This ensures that the school is able to retain quality educators, though it is not a state-sponsored school.)
- and emergency medical care.
Currently this costs $25 per month per child. You can pay this monthly by check. For details click Donate.
When you click "Sponsor Today" below and fill out the Sponsorship Form, our team will assemble a Sponsorship Packet for you matching your preferences as closely as possible.
From the time you fill out the form it generally takes approximately two weeks for your Sponsorship Packet to arrive.
You will have an opportunity to review the information in the Packet: your child's information (including a picture of the child) and our Sponsorship agreement. When we receive your first monthly contribution, your commitment to sponsor that child is solidified.
Our Commitment to Our Sponsors
We work very hard to keep sponsorship costs low. And we commit 100% of your sponsorship contribution to the needs of the children. Our team is committed to finding alternative funding for covering our overhead expenses, so that all of your money goes directly to meeting the needs of the kids in Kenya.
Writing Letters to Kenyan Children
We encourage sponsors to write letters to the children in Kenya. However, we do ask that a certain degree of cultural sensitivity is employed in the process. Please click here to find detailed instructions for writing letters to Kenyan children.
We are so grateful for our sponsors!
To become a sponsor today, please fill out this form and a member of our team will put a Sponsorship Packet in the mail for you.

Don't Have Enough Monthly Income To Make The Commitment?
Want to help? But don't have enough monthly income to put your money where your heart is? Been there!
Maybe you could rally a small group of friends around this cause? You don't have to carry the sponsorship costs alone! Find a few like-minded (and like-hearted) friends and go in together.
Helpful Fact: Kenyan families seldom live in isolation (like most Americans do). Often, one family's home will be the gathering point for several families to do life together on a daily basis.
Maybe your commitment to this cause will be the gathering point for your friends to get involved in something that is changing the lives of children all the way around the world!
