Sponsorship Information

   HOW DO I SPONSOR A CHILD?
  1. Send an email to Jodie Stoltenow@sothfamily.org

  2. Indicate at what level you would like to sponsor a child.

  3. Indicate if you have a boy or girl preference. We will send you an email with information about the child you will be sponsoring .       

 HOW DO I SET UP PAYMENTS FOR MY SPONSORED CHILD?

 Please follow the instructions to set up your payments 

  1. Choose how you will pay for your sponsorship. (Pay online or by check)

  2. Click on pink donate button in upper right hand corner

  3. On this page, you will find links to pay online or Mail In by check.

HOW DO I CORRESPOND WITH MY SPONSORED CHILD? 
  1. Write a letter. While Cambodia does have a mail system, most mail is opened and often does not make its way to the people. We suggest you send all mail through email.  Write a simple message that he/she will understand. You can also send actual letters, pictures, and small gifts through the Shepherd of the Hills Cambodia Mission Team yearly.  

  2. What information will my child want to know about me?   Tell them some simple facts about yourself and family. The children also like to hear about any pets you may have. Encourage them to trust in God and share His love. Do not include personal contact information on your letter. We want to protect your privacy as parents may encourage the children to contact you directly to solicit money for them. 

  3. Send pictures! A picture tells a thousands words. Send pictures of you, your family, and activities. Do not show pictures of your home. An average home in America looks like you are very rich. 

  4. Send a video clip. You can video yourself giving a short message to them. It will be translated for them. This is a fun exciting way to have a relationship. 

 

HOW DOES MY SPONSORED CHILD COMMUNICATE WITH ME?
  1. You will receive letters, pictures, and drawings at least twice a year.

  2. Joe Stoltenow will send you updates on a regular basis informing you of your child’s school progress, prayer needs, and overall health and wellness. 

  3. Facetime- you can make arrangements with Joe to visit with them face to face.

CAN I SEND ACTUAL GIFTS TO MY CHILD?

Yes, The Shepherd Mission Team or Joe & Viya can deliver personal gifts each year. We encourage these gifts to be small items such as stickers, coloring books, small crafts, or cars with a letter. 

 

If you would like to send a personal birthday or Christmas gift, the following are items we recommend. 

  1. Dental Care- We would like to be able to have the children have regular check ups and cavities filled on a regular basis instead of pulling permanent teeth when they are older. We are estimating $200 a year.

  2. Birthday Party- Help us provide a special party to celebrate your child’s birthday. 

  3. Yearly Backpack- Backpacks in Cambodia are not well made. If you would like to give your child a good backpack, send it with the Mission Team or Joe and Viya during the year and we will save it for his/her birthday.

  4. Provide an educational toy to the program in his/her name. 

 

WHAT OTHER WAYS CAN WE HELP OUR CHILD? 
  1. We want our kids to appreciate what God has done for them and to celebrate the important day of our faith. We intend to have special celebrations for our children and their families at Christmas and Easter.  We want to provide a meal and some small presents that will help each family.  We expect the cost to range in the $100 area. Contribute any amount if you would like and we let your child know you helped make it happen! 

  2. End of the School Year Trip- Many of our kids get discouraged by struggling in classes or when they are in a grade level much lower than their age. Sometimes they want to quit, and we are the only ones encouraging them. As incentive to push through the difficult parts of their education is an end of the year trip. This year we went to Siem Reap and took them to see Angkor Wat sponsored by on of the kids sponsor. This is an approximate cost of $400. Contribute any amount if you would like and we let your child know you helped make it happen!
