CHANGES IN DONATION PAYMENT INFORMATION

and family life.  We also upload their grade reports so you can see how they are doing in school and keep up with their progress.  Reports are updated 3 times per year and we will email you when the new reports are posted.


Here are some features that we have added to our new system to help you stay informed about your sponsored child.

  • A "Letter Box" Feature where you can easily correspond with your child by email.  You can send an email to your child, and when they respond, our team will upload their handwritten letter back to you to their profile.  You will be notified by email that you have a letter waiting for you from your child.  You can also print the letter and keep it for you and your family to enjoy.
  • Our photo gallery is similar to that of social media sites.  Instead of only having one profile picture, you are able to see photos that your child is tagged in and are notified when they have been tagged in new photos.
  • The grade reports for your child are easily accessed and you can to look at their whole year at a glance. If you already sponsor a child, you have been sent an email with your username and password for this site.  Please go to our database site by clicking the sponsor database button below and click Sponsor Login.  Enter the username and password that you were given.  If you don't know or remember your log in information, you can email us at info@hopefoundationofkenya.org and we will be able to give it to you.

CORRESPONDING WITH YOUR CHILD

We have a brand new online student database that has information about your child in a profile that you can view anytime.  This new system is so wonderful and provides so many more ways to keep informed about your sponsored child.  It also provides you with your own profile where you can edit information, check your donation records and more. 

Your child's profile displays their name, birthday, favorite subjects, the languages they speak as well as information about their home          

*Disclaimer: In the recent past there have been sponsors whose packages never got to their child because of the discrepancies and inefficiencies in the foreign mail system.  You may send something, but there is a risk that it might not get to your child.  If you have any questions or need information, please contact us at (info@hopefoundationofkenya.org)

If you already sponsor a child, thank you!  We are so thankful for your generosity and help for the children in Kenya. Please find some helpful information below on how to keep in contact with your child and stay up to date on how they are doing in school.  

If you do not sponsor a child yet, but would like to, please click on the "Sponsor a Child" button to get started.  

To donate to one of our ongoing projects, click the "Donate Now" button below to make a donation.

If you are currently sponsoring a child and your automatic donation payment information changes at any point, we can easily change that for you.  If you have a new credit card number, checking account number, expiration date, or change of personal information, please let us know.  We can access the payment information through our online portal.  Just call us at (800)513-1625 and we will be happy to update your payment profile.  If you call after office hours, feel free to leave the new information on our private voicemail system.  Your information will be secure and will be retrieved by our financial officer the next day and deleted once it has been changed.  Thank you for your sponsorship of our ministry!  We appreciate your generosity.

Your sponsored child would love to hear from you and know more about you and your family.  If you would like to send a letter or pictures to your child, you have a couple of options. You can send your letter in an email to your child through our online database, and we'll pass it onto your child in Kenya. Or you can send one by mail to our PO Box address listed below. To send an email, click the link below and sign into our database.  Click the Letterbox menu to send a new letter to your child.  You can also upload pictures to your email so your child can get to know you and your family.

You can make a one time donation of $15 by clicking the "Donate Now" button above. Choose the Food Bundle option in the projects list and complete the form. In the comments section, give the child's name and what the donation is being given for.  We could buy food items for the family, or other necessities such as oil, flour, sugar, rice, beans, soap, etc. Sponsors can also purchase a $25 birthday or Christmas gift for the sponsored child by choosing the "Gift for Sponsored Child" option in the projects list. 

To send a letter or package to your sponsored child by mail,  please make note of these suggestions.  

  • Keep your package limited to the size of a padded envelope. Either a Letter size or Legal size envelope will do.  This allows the package to go directly to our post office box without being processed through customs.  If it is too big to go in the box, it will be sent to the main post office in Mombasa and processed through customs and will take longer to get to the child and will incur customs charges.


  • Do not send anything electronic or that might require electricity to charge.  Even battery powered things are not good because the batteries are expensive for the families to replace and most don't have the means to do it.


  • Do not send anything that could break or spill while being transported.


  • When sending gifts to Kenya, please do not include any kind of plastic or ziploc bag.  Those have been banned in Kenya due to the problem they were causing to the local environment.

I ALREADY SPONSOR A CHILD, NOW WHAT?

LET US SHOP FOR YOU! ~ FOOD BUNDLE

When sending an email to your sponsored child, please keep a few things in mind:

  • Please make sure that personal information like email addresses, last names, mailing addresses, etc. are not put into letters between you and your child.  For security and privacy reasons, we would like to make sure that personal information does not get passed around or does not put you or your family's information at risk.


  • We will collect all letters from the sponsors to the children once a month to take them to the schools.  If you would like to send an email letter, it is best to do it at the end of the month so you make sure to get it in before we print them around the first of each month.


  • We will try to get responses from the children as soon as possible, but it might be a few weeks before you hear back from them, especially if you have sent your email near the beginning or middle of the month.


  • All emails back and forth between children and sponsors will be approved by the administrator of the database site before the letter is sent.  This is to protect both the children and sponsors from privacy infringement and to make sure the information contained in the letter is acceptable.
