Child Sponsorship

The Children's Home of Pestel raises children in a Christ-centered, supportive community. We strive on giving the children a relational family environment; where they can grow and thrive physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Along with a supportive and healthy living environment, education is something that the children are also in need of in Pestel. Education is something that can help support children throughout their lives. In order to make these changes in the children's lives, Churchquake International has created a "family tree” where each child will have up to 5 sponsors, each donating $30. 

Sponsorship funds are used to provide:

  • Balanced nutrition
  • Hygiene
  • Medical needs/general healthcare
  • Schooling
  • Tutoring
  • Housing
  • Utilities
  • Maintenance
  • Security
  • Transportation
  • Extra-curricular child development activities

She is strong willed and is very athletically strong as well. At one point Levencia was in our care because her mother mentally was not stable. She lives very near to the children's home and visits several times a week so her well being is constantly monitored.  Levencia at this time does not attend school due to it just being her and her mother with a baby on the way. We need a sponsor for Levencia to be able to attend school for the next semester.
