L.O.V.E.'s commitment to our sponsors and to the children and their families:

1. We will send progress reports twice a year and when special needs occur such as severe illness. 

2. We will translate all correspondence between you and the child.

3. We will deliver letters, packages, etc. (many cannot receive mail at their homes).

We encourage sponsors to:

1. Be faithful in your financial commitment.

2. Build a relationship with the child/family:

- For those who provide a scholarship we will have letters or emails to the child translated twice a year.

- For those who sponsor a a child, children, or a family we will have letters or emails to the child translated once a month.

- Generously share your Christian faith!

3. Send gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and Tet, when you can. (Or send us the money and tell us what to buy...that is usually more cost effective.)

Scholarships

We also have the option of providing a Scholarship for a child in lieu of full sponsorship.
Choose a child from the profiles above and note on the application that this is a Scholarship.

Interim Scholarship Option: You may choose to provide a scholarship for a child until they are sponsored full-time. If you choose this option, we will leave their profile on the Sponsorship page. When a full-time sponsor chooses your child, we will notify you to end your scholarship provision for that child, or you may choose another child.


HOPE Scholarship Program: This program supports ethnic minority children in mountain villages near Da Nang. Click here to learn more.

How Funds Are Spent

Table Item Descriptions
Monthly Stipend

This will pay for school fees and most other required fees. In addition, sponsored children will be able to take extra classes needed for improved scores.

Reserve Fund

This is a fund within LOVE that we can draw from to provide a school uniform and textbooks for each child, and to help our children with medical, dental, emergencies, nutrition and other needs.

Administration

This covers the cost of salaries, office supplies, etc. LOVE charges a 20% administrative fee on all sponsorships and 10% for scholarships, student houses and extra donations to a child. This money is needed to pay staff salaries, office costs and supplies and to help support other programs such as medical, dental and scholarships for children not yet sponsored.

Extra Gifts

Money sent for gifts (birthdays, Christmas, etc.) or other needs: We survey the child’s needs (and wants) to buy the best gifts. We often take the child shopping to see they get value per dollar. In most cases, we advise against giving more than a few dollars directly to the child in cash because they spend it unwisely, or a parent may take the money for cigarettes or beer, etc..
