Sponsorship FAQ's

How much does child sponsorship cost?

The cost of sponsoring a child in Kenya is $30 per month. All gifts are tax-deductible.

What does child sponsorship provide? 

Your monthly sponsorship payment of $30 will provide the following for your sponsored child: 

Proper nutrition
A monthly medical checkup
A school uniform
Necessary school supplies
A safe and positive after-school environment provided by our loving staff in Kenya

Am I the only sponsor for each child I sponsor? 

Yes, Project Lucas assigns only one sponsor per sponsored child.

Can I communicate with my sponsored child?

Yes!!  Your child will love to hear from you and will write back!  Please feel free to communicate with your sponsored child through letters or postcards.  When writing your letter, it’s important to consider your sponsored child’s environment and culture. For example, it’s best not to write about the things you own, since your child has very few possessions.  Feel free to share about your family, friends, and interests. You can always include a colorful postcard or photo, which your sponsored child will treasure. You may send any correspondence and gifts directly to our center in Kenya in an envelope no larger than 6”x9”.  This will help us to avoid paying any duty or fees on larger packages. Be sure to include your sponsored child’s name in the envelope.  To avoid confusion, please use Project Lucas’ address as the return mailing address and do not include your contact information on correspondence to your sponsored child.
