How is the money used? Money from sponsorships goes into a fund that helps cover the cost of: basic care, food, shelter, leader's salaries, school fees, tutoring, and spiritual education. Uncharted collects a 10% fee to help cover the costs of providing the appropriate level of oversight and financial responsibility.
How long is the commitment? Though we understand that financial and life situations change, we strongly believe that long-term relationships are ideal. We would love to see a sponsor walk with their child through school-age, until they become an adult and venture out on their own.
Can I correspond with my child? No. Because of the sensitive nature of where the children live, we are unable to send letters in case something unintentionally is said that could damage the presence of our partner organization.
Can I visit my child? Yes! Our Trips provide a great opportunity to this and we encourage this experience as it brings a wonderful level of depth and connectivity to the relationship. Sign up for a trip here.
