It takes just £10 a month to enable a Samaritan’s Purse local church partner to bring a family from a point of total despair and destitution to real hope and a sustainable future.
This is a real investment in the future of families – whether headed by a granny, a child, a single parent, or a mum and dad – all simply wanting to protect and provide a future for their children.
Unlike traditional ‘sponsorship’ programmes, Raising Families ensures no long-term dependency on donors; families are taken to a sustainable future within three years.
But there’s more. Donors rightly expect us to make every penny count, to maximise the impact of their giving. So, with Raising Families we have chosen to work through trained volunteers from local churches instead of paid field staff and we have reduced ‘administration’ costs, such as creating profiles, sending photographs and providing regular reports about the individual family. We have also worked with local Churches and communities to contribute their own assets, giving them ownership and dignity and cutting dependence.
