Sponsor A Child And Change Their Life Forever
Every child deserves a strong start. Unfortunately, many poor families consider education a luxury that they cannot afford. With your help, we can change that. The Dreams Sponsorship program helps children reach their full potential and break the cycle of generational poverty through education.
When you sponsor a child, you create a lasting relationship between you and the community where your donation is helping to change the future. This program delivers more than the satisfaction that comes from educating children, providing you with the unique opportunity to witness the difference your support makes in impoverished lives.
How does the sponsorship process work?
Choose to sponsor a child for PKR 1,000 a month, deposit three months’ of your sponsorship monthly pledge, and inform us at email@example.com with the subject “Child Sponsorship”.
You will get an introduction letter with details of the child assigned to you. You are the only sponsor for this child.
Watch your child learn and grow. You can learn about your child’s educational progress and send gift packages.

3. When will Possibilities Foundation inform me about my sponsored child?
The Possibilities Foundation team will assign a child to you within 2-3 weeks of receiving payment. You will be sent an introduction letter which will include brief details of the child and his school.
4. How long does the sponsorship last?
The Possibilities Child Sponsorship Program is fully committed to children’s complete education so your sponsorship may continue up to the age of 18 depending on the needs of your child.
5. What if I cannot continue sponsoring my child?
If you cannot continue your sponsorship, kindly let us know in advance so that we can find a new donor for your child.
6. Does my monthly amount go directly to the child?
The child does not receive direct cash benefits. Giving the money to the family of the child does not ensure that it is spent on the child. Instead, we deposit the money directly as school fees and by buying the child books, stationery, uniform, and shoes.
7. Why do I have to make my sponsorship payment three months in advance?
We pay your child’s fees three months in advance. The deposits and payments are easier to track this way as well. Therefore, we recommend that our sponsors donate money four times a year – ideally, in January, April, July and October.
8. Can I pay for the entire year in advance?
Absolutely. That is our preferred option since sponsors do not have to worry about depositing their sponsorship money each quarter and we are able to easily plan our yearly educational budget.
9. How can I keep updated with my child’s educational progress?
We will provide you with the contact details of the child’s school principal and/or teacher.
10. How will my money benefit the sponsored child?
Our first priority is ensuring the child is receiving an education. With the remaining amount, children receive the following educational support according to their needs: books, uniforms, school bags, shoes, stationery, and transportation expenses. The costs of keeping records on sponsored children are also covered through the monthly sponsorship gifts.
11. If I cannot commit to full sponsorship, how else can I help support children’s education?
You have two options:
a. You can pledge to donate according to your means and we can match you with a co-sponsor. PKR 1,000 is our preferred minimum contribution so that two people’s generosity can support one child’s education.
b. We also have an Education Support Program Fund to which you can donate any amount which supports the education of children who are yet to be fully sponsored.
12. Who can I speak to if I have more questions?
