The child sponsorship programme is run in partnership with Christian schools in the Gambia. Since 2006, the Partnership has been sponsoring children through school, whereby children are not only provided with an education but are brought into contact with the Gospel as part of that education.
For the cost of £14 a month the financial support of the sponsor is directed through the Partnership to the school concerned in order to cover the cost of all the child’s expenses including school fees, book fees and uniform costs. Many Muslim children from the area attend the schools and benefit both from the education and the Gospel message they come into contact with, ‘Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.’ (Proverbs 22:6)
The sponsorship programme allows the sponsor the opportunity to contact their sponsored child and follow their progress by receiving letters, pictures and annual reports from their teachers. To provide a child with a Christian education in a poverty stricken land in need of the the light of the Gospel is an effective use of resources and one that can provide eternal results.
