May I meet the child that I sponsor?
Of course! Meeting your sponsored child is a special and memorable blessing for both the child and you!
Prior to your arrival, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to provide the following information for each sponsored child you wish to meet: (1) full name; (2) student identification number; and (3) school that he/she attends.
Please note that if you sponsor a high school student, it may be difficult for us to arrange a meeting for you unless they attend one of our boarding centers outside of Nairobi. However, we will do our best!
If your team visits during a school break (April, August, or December), your sponsored child may be visiting family outside of Nairobi. Therefore, please provide the above information to us as soon as possible so we can arrange for them to be available.
What should I bring for my sponsored child?
We encourage sponsors to bring a small gift for their child. However, because not all sponsors can make the trip to Kenya, please ensure that your gifts are not extravagant. Also, please ensure that your gifts are age appropriate and culturally sensitive. A good rule of thumb is if a child that age in America would like it, MOHI kids will like it!
CMF’s website provides great gift ideas! Some suggested items are socks, underwear, a Bible, crayons or colored pencils (with pencil sharpener), stationary, a soccer ball, picture books, dolls, and small toys (but NOT snakes, dragons, guns, or similar items). A photograph of you and your family is also great! Please ensure that the photo uses a neutral background (i.e., no material possessions, like cars, houses, etc. in the photo).
Can I sponsor a child while visiting MOHI?
Yes, you can! Child sponsorship is facilitated primarily through the CMF office in Indiana. Prior to coming to MOHI, you can sponsor a child online through CMF's website, and we can facilitate meeting that child once you’re here in Kenya. However, if you don’t sponsor a child online before you come, we can also facilitate selecting and meeting a child to sponsor when you are here at MOHI.
