If you are a new sponsor, you will select a child/school from the entry page. For current sponsors, you will select the “Sponsor another Child/School” button at the bottom of the Your Sponsor Info page to see the pictures of available students and schools.
Clicking on the child’s picture takes you to their profile. The profile includes their monthly support amount and some information about the child. Click on “Sponsor” box to see additional information about the child. Clicking on the second “Sponsor” box will take you to the Selection page. You can also reach this page by selecting the Child/School Selected tab.
For most children, 1 pledge unit is sufficient to provide monetary support for their schooling. However, in a few of the fields, students live on the campus and need more monetary support so may need 5 or more units. In this situation, a sponsor may choose to support more than 1 unit for a student. Select the ‘Update’ button if you make changes to the units number.
If you decide not to select the child that is displayed, clicking the X button to the left of the child’s name will delete the child from your selection.
