Sponsor a Student

Sponsorship is one of the easiest ways to help a student.

Step 1
Learn about who we sponsor and why.

Sponsored children come from poor and marginalized families. Many are Dalit (formerly known as “Untouchables”), the lowest social group in the Hindu caste system. The word Dalit means “oppressed” or “broken.”

We believe that education is the way for these students to break cycles of poverty, illiteracy, malnutrition, child marriage, child labor, and abuse. By sponsoring a student, you are providing them with a step up and hope for a better future.

Step 2
Learn what sponsorship provides.

Just $40 a month provides safe shelter, food, clothing, medical care, school supplies, and academic, emotional, and spiritual support as your student(s) receive a quality education at our Lutheran partners’ schools. At the same time, these students – mostly Hindu – experience the love of God by our Indian partners, the Arcot Lutheran Church and the India Evangelical Lutheran Church, both in Tamil Nadu, India.

Individuals, families, small groups (like book clubs), and congregations currently support nearly 1,300 students.

Step 3
Meet students on the waiting list, select yours, and sign up today!

You may look through all student profiles or filter by age, birth month, birth year, or gender. Once you select your student(s), you will be asked for personal information (which we keep safe) and to set up your payment plan. You may choose the frequency of your payments via credit card or bank account online. We also accept checks, or non-cash assets such as stocks and securities.

Once you have submitted this information, we will contact you with further details, including an introduction letter from your student and directions for how you may write back.
